Beach Clean-up with Loreto Transition Year students

A group of Transition Year students, who are currently working with An Taisce in a ‘Coastcare’ initiative, recently completed a biological baseline survey and clean up of Ballyheiran beach in Fanad.

The aim of Coastcare is to involve local people in caring for their local coastal environment, by promoting and supporting safe enjoyable conservation activities, such as beach clean-ups, awareness raising and practical countryside tasks.

7 bags of rubbish, most of which was deposited on the shore by the tide, were removed from the beach.
