Help us keep the shores clean this summer!

These FREE events will give you the chance to help the environment and learn more about local species and the shores around us.

Newquay, famously known for its beaches, is in need of a clean up to protect our local wildlife and beautiful coastlines. With litter being brought in by the tide and visitors to the beaches it has never been more important to help clean up our sands.

By helping us with our coastal clean ups, you could also be in with a chance of winning a penguin experience for two at Newquay Zoo. Simply book onto a beach clean with us to enter!*
