The Great Winter Nurdle Hunt
Monday 30th January 2017
This coming weekend, the 3rd-5th February is the Great Winter Nurdle Hunt
What on earth is a Nurdle, you may ask?
Nurdles are small plastic pellets which are a raw material in the manufacture of plastic products.
They are being found in large numbers in the marine environment and are harmful to marine life.
The Great Nurdle Hunt is being organised in collaboration with a number of organisations including Greenpeace and the Marine Conservation Society.
They are asking people to visit a beach over the coming weekend and keep an eye out for nurdles and record them to provide evidence to the UK Government of the scale of this issue.
