Neptune's Army of Rubbish Cleaners (NARC)
“Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners is tackling an unglamorous and largely unseen but very harmful blight on the littoral fringes of a coastal park.”
Based in the UK, NARC carry out regular underwater clean ups. To celebrate their 12th year, Sea-Changers funded 10 underwater sea cleans within Pembrokeshire. During the dives, NARC divers removed litter such as plastic, as well as trapped lobster pots that local lobster fisherman had previously been unable to retrieve.
The grant also funded equipment, like new underwater recording slates to ensure all litter and the impact of it are recorded, and new material to display at events for awareness raising.
NARC’s project was featured by Sky News, Sky Ocean Rescue, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail.
