Wardie Bay Beachwatch

Wardie Bay Beachwatch

Residents of Wardie Bay were a bit fed up with the state of the local beach, particularly the amount of plastic waste and sewage that was always found washed up. They decided to take action, and Wardie Bay Beachwatch was born!
Not content with just cleaning up their own patch, the group decided that the Marine Conservation Society’s survey method was going to be the most appropriate way to get the message out. So, each time there’s a beachclean, volunteers create statistics from what they find and feed them back to the National database. The group also volunteers to help Fidra’s Nurdle Hunt and the Have You Got the Bottle? campaign, urging local and national councillors and politicians to help increase recycling and save our beaches from the approaching ‘plastic tide’.
We will be working with Wardie Bay Beachwatch and artist Sally Price to create an installation artwork on Wardie Beach to highlight the impact of pollution in our oceans.
See this work on display at the Edinburgh Shoreline exhibition from 28 July – 23 September. Keep an eye on our updates page to see how the project progresses.
