Marine Litter

Anne and Lesley came in to talk to us about Marine Litter and why it is so important to keep the beaches and other areas free from litter. We looked at all the different types of litter and found that that plastic especially is really harmful as it takes so long to degrade.

We also watched these videos to help us remember to keep our oceans free of litter, and that we should all try to help.
