This October we are thrilled to be taking part in a nurdle hunt! Our activity will feed into the Great Global Nurdle Hunt organised by Fidra and happening everywhere in the planet between the 1st-31st October.
Nurdles are also known as mermaid's tears and have very interesting stories behind them; unlike many other types of microplastics, they do not originate in domestic rubbish but they are equally very harmful to wildlife.
If spending an hour on a beautiful beach learning about and taking steps against plastic pollution sounds remotely interesting, join us on the 15th of October. The time will be dependent on the tides and will be confirmed closer to the date, but it will likely be in the early afternoon.
The meeting point will be at the Western Road surface car park, Poole (postcode: BH13 7BN), from where we will walk for 200m to the beach, armed with hunting equipment for nurdle searching.
If you would like to take part, please get in touch so we can notify you of the exact meeting time closer to the date.
