Yorkshire Coast Marine Litter Coalition

The Yorkshire coast benefits from a large community of volunteers and citizen scientists who carry out regular beach cleans and support marine litter reduction initiatives.

These activities remove litter from the environment and collect important information about the location, quantities, and types of pollution.  Working closely with our partners, we’re exploring how this data can be used to inform local policy making.

We’ve also formed the Yorkshire Coast Marine Litter Coalition to support the groups collecting this data ‘on the ground’, in partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the Marine Conservation Society.

This Coalition brings together different groups from across the Yorkshire coast who carry out marine litter reduction activities.  The informal network, which meets twice a year, provides a space to share knowledge, develop collaborative ideas and target resources where they are needed most.
