beach animals

The beach clean-up season starts!
Next weekend: the Ocean Initiatives organised by SURFRIDER Foundation.
I thought this year would be nothing to collect - but today and tomorrow we have a storm outside from the east rolling over the Baltic Sea. Lots of marine litter!
Another beach clean-up event will be on March 24 at the
Nationalpark Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft.

clean beaches

It is pretty cold at the moment and the beach starts to freeze. I went for 2 wonderful hours without one piece of litter! Whao! But the next storm is going to come as well as the tourists.

ICC days of action


On the Island of Rugen we had fine stormy weather, fantastic girls and boys and two messages in a bottle. They were send two days earlier from Warnemünde (about 80km)and obviously "speed swam", drifted eastward with the storm to this coastline near Dranske. Amazing.

Warnemünde - information day about marine litter from various organisations - EUCC-D, NAJU, BUND, DJH, up cycling atelier, beached art

International Coastal Cleanup Day 2017

It is the weekend of the annual International Coastal Clean-up Day initiated by Ocean Conservancy. A worldwide day of action to clean up beaches and shores.
This year I am not going to organize a beach clean-up because I am invited to join a group of schoolchildren and the teacher who is doing this for years and years with his pupils on the island of Rugen in Germany. Fantastic!
On Saturday 10:00 there will be an information event at the lighthouse Warnemunde with different organisations working on the subject of marine litter. A beach clean-up starts at 14:00.
See you there!

day on the beach

It is a mixture of ice cream sticks (western Germany), sun milk (eastern Germany), sand toys (both of them). Collected on an east German island called Rugen. Please to all of you on the beach -  take all of your stuff back home. Have a nice day on the beach!
(And a lemon juice bottle bleached by the sun - fantastic finding)
