BeachPatrol Helping Schools Education

Beachpatrol can come to schools both primary and secondary, to put on presentations about plastic litter, what it is doing to our environment and marine life

We can also take students out on a beach or street litter survey. During these exercises the students work in small groups along the beach or street to record the litter count and type using Beachpatrol survey sheets. At the end of the survey the sheets are collated and the students work out total litter picked up in that session and what the litter types are.
