By collecting litter in your local area, you can make a real difference on improving your local environment while also helping to stem the flow of plastic waste into the ocean. Help Whale and Dolphin Conservation make a real difference to protect whales and dolphins, and all marine life, from this preventable threat.

Not only will you make a positive impact on the health of the ocean, but it will have a positive impact on your team and business:

  • Get outside amongst nature.
  • Work as a team.
  • Improve mental/physical wellbeing.
  • Make a tangible local impact where your staff live and work.
  • Generate positive PR/content potential for business social channels.
  • Have fun!

Take a peek at our video below to hear from WDC's CEO, Chris Butler-Stroud, and get a glimpse of what an Urban Beach Clean could mean for you and your team!

"Our people really valued the opportunity to get outside and make a real, meaningful and visible impact on the issue of plastic pollution in their communities and beyond.  The informative and inspiring talks given by WDC staff to kick off each clean really motivated the volunteers and helped them learn more about the links between plastic pollution, marine life and climate change.  Many people are already asking when the next ‘Clean’ will be taking place!"

WDC partner, Head of Volunteering

“Everyone had a fantastic time – I think everyone could have kept going for another 45 mins and I’ve already had a number of people ask when the next one is going to be so a really great event!”

WDC partner, Volunteer Coordinator

“It was amazing to hear more about WDC and what we can do to help our cetacean friends and their living environments! Everyone was really impressed with the work you do at WDC and I am sure that all of us will make smaller or bigger changes after yesterday.”
