SEA LIFE's biggest ever beach clean

Around 350 volunteers turned up to support SEA LIFE Blackpool’s biggest ever beach clean and helped remove more than 148 kilos of litter.

In just one hour, people attending the SEA LIFE Big Blackpool Beach Clean 24 collected more rubbish from the 2.7mile coastline than SEA LIFE Blackpool removed across all of its 2023 beach cleans. 

Kyle Woodcock, Head of Operations at SEA LIFE Blackpool said; “The majority of the litter collected by our incredible 350 volunteers was predominantly plastic food packaging, however there were some unusual items too including a scooter and cooking knife.

“We organised our largest ever beach clean as we wanted to collect more of the rubbish blighting our beautiful beach and causing harm to local marine life than we did across all of our 2023 beach cleans.

“An immense 148 kilos of litter was collected. This wouldn’t have been possible without our army of volunteers, and I cannot thank them all enough. By giving up an hour of their time our volunteers have helped protect our oceans and the sea creatures that live within them.”

Local businesses and organisations across the golden mile lent their support to the initiative including the newly opened Holiday Inn Blackpool, Hampton by Hilton Blackpool, Blackpool Transport, Construction Blackpool and The Fylde College, and Notarianni Ices.
