Mull Adopt-a-beach logoMull Otter Group is attempting to harness support for an island-wide scheme that seeks to encourage individuals, families, groups and organisations to take greater responsibility for (some of) the mess we humans leave behind.

As Winter storms deliver a new batch of assorted debris onto our coastline, now is the time to mobilise thought into organising clean-ups to take place this Spring. This is vital, not only from an aesthetic point of view, but it also helps protect wildlife that may be at risk of injury or death from discarded plastic and glass.

Isle of Mull Adopt-a-Beach seeks to build on the great work already being carried out by Countryside Rangers, schools and other charitable and non-charitable organisations on the island. In doing so, MOG plan to act as a conduit to encourage more extensive and frequent beach cleaning across the island.

MOG hope to encourage local individuals and/or groups to identify and adopt small areas of shoreline throughout the island’s 306 miles of coastline, with a view to keeping it tidy with annual or bi-annual visits.

MOG’s new baby ‘Mull Adopt-a-Beach’ has a Facebook page of its own. Click ‘Like’ to show your support and give encouragement to this great new initiative!
