Warbarrow Beach clean  April 2013 c Mark Fisher

The Dorset Wildlife Trust is inviting volunteers to a beach clean at Worbarrow Bay at 10am on Sunday 15 September.

The event aims to try and combat the major litter problems affecting the area.  Litter can be found on the beach at busy times of the year and during storms, and not only ruins the wonderful landscape of Dorset’s coast, but is potentially damaging to our precious marine environment.
