On Sunday the 5th of August we took a trip to Ardglass beach for a clean up and found a whopping 98 kg of litter and would have got lots more if only we'd had more help!!! We were joined by only one other person be he alone made a big difference!!! Thank you Matt for all of your hard work! We hope to have another beach clean soon but until then keep raising awareness!!!
During July I took a life changing trip to Clearwater, Florida to attend the junior marine biologist camp and meet the amazing dolphins with amazing stories! Myself and my brother had a dolphin experience with Hope, the companion of Winter who lost her tail to a crab trap in 2005.
At the camp we learnt all there was to know about being a marine biologist and we also took home some useful information on the state the ocean is in. Big shout out to everyone I met at camp and the awesome staff at Clearwater Aquarium!!!
We've done it! 10 awesome beach cleans!

On the 31st of March we took a trip to Cushandall beach and collected 15kg of rubbish! We hadn't planned this Project but were on a day out over Easter on the North Coast of Northern Ireland and stopped at the beach on the way home. We couldn't believe the amount of litter there. So we took a quick 20 minute out of our trip to clean up!
On the 24th of March we took another trip to Tyrella beach with a small group joining us! We collected around 40kg of rubbish and had a great time!
A very special thank you to Mrs Johnston's P3 children of Gilnahirk Primary School for checking my website weekly!!! We hope you can join us for some beach cleaning very soon!

It was a great day and thanks to everyone who joined us!
