We are proud to be a part of St Helena’s DEFRA funded project, ‘Sustainably Managing Plastic Waste on St Helena to Minimise Marine Debris‘.

We collaborate with EMD Marine Section, EMD Waste Management Services and the local charity, SHAPE.

Under this project, we have expanded upon our regular Trust beach cleans to Sandy Bay and Rupert’s by also visiting and surveying Shark’s Valley and Lemon Valley.

Each survey location receives different amounts and forms of marine debris which is in itself very interesting.

We are now in the process of compiling an in-depth report summarising our findings. In the meantime however, please feel free to look at our data collected so far!
