Protecting Wildlife from Litter


MVS Poole has teamed up with local charity, Oceans to Earth and Dorset County Council’s Coastal Officer, to work together to help combat litter in Poole Harbour.

The unit will be supporting the charity to look after wildlife living in and around Poole Harbour by actively looking for litter when out on patrols and training exercises.

They plan to collect the litter where possible and also to document where it was found and report back to Oceans to Earth which will help them build a picture of what’s going on in the local environment based on data gathered in real time.

The unit will also be working with the charity to organise beach clean-up sessions.
