Marine Litter/Clean Seas project
Natural and cultural resources
The aim of the project is to raise awareness and change behaviours to reduce marine litter through a creating an iconic steel sculpture of a sea bass filled with plastic litter on the Amroth sea front. Linking with Keep Wales Tidy & PCC to support the UN Clean Seas Campaign, to coincide with the Visit Wales Year of the Sea 2018 and the Volvo Ocean Race being hosted in Wales in May/June the Clean Seas pledge part of the project will not simply focus on litter which has already ended up in the sea, but will address land-based pollution which represents over 80% of the source of marine litter.
The project will raise awareness of the importance of keeping our seas clean and rich in biodiversity.
The project will involve local group volunteers from Coastcare, Keep Wales Tidy and Surfers against Sewage etc., local businesses, local schools, local households and visitors to the area.
