Beach Guardian Project

The Project

We are currently working with Visit Cornwall to build a network of community beach clean teams across Cornwall that can respond in the aftermath of incidents such as the 2013/2014 winter storms, and run regular beach cleans to engage and inspire communities in a pro-active approach to protecting Cornwall’s amazing beaches.

The project is aimed to help expand community engagement through a network of established beach cleaning groups and new lead volunteers around Cornwall. Our aim is to highlight and promote the amazing work these groups do, and use SAS’s experience and extensive networks to encourage and guide more people to get involved. Most importantly perhaps is the creation of a joined-up network of like-minded & experienced groups who can react in unison when the coastline is damaged by marine litter or any other environmental incident.

Current members of the Beach Guardian Project are:

For upcoming beach cleans see here. If you want to get involved with any of the Beach Guardian’s Groups please email us at [email protected] or call jack on 01872 555 956.

Thanks to Visit Cornwall for helping make this project possible.
