Our parent charity, The Ocean Conservation Trust, are carrying out 25 Ocean City Clean-ups throughout 2023 for The Aquarium’s 25th Anniversary!

Join us at these two hour drop-in events to help clean up Plymouth’s Waterfront and become part of a movement to reduce plastic entering our Ocean. We are committed to reducing avoidable plastics in Plymouth and are part of Plymouth’s Plan for Plastics. These litter picks will be led by our staff and open to all members of the public!

All equipment will be provided, just bring some enthusiasm!

These clean ups will be:

  • A clean up with litter picking equipment provided
  • A chance to speak to a marine biologist about Ocean conservation
  • Contributing to reducing Ocean plastics
  • Finding out how to reduce your plastic footprint

If you’re interested in taking part simply click on the button below to register! Once you’ve done that, we will email you regarding upcoming dates and information for the litter picks.
