Donate rubbish to help the ocean

Have your say

Sealife in Blackpool is asking visitors to donate their old rubbish to help support ocean life.

As part of World Oceans Day on June 8, the centre is launching a scheme to raise awareness about protecting the sea environment.

Visitors are asked to 
donate household rubbish items, which often end up in the ocean, causing 
harm to the delicate marine life.

Items accepted include plastic bags, plastic bottles and ring pulls, which will then be used by the Sea-life team to create a unique piece of art on Blackpool beach, just in time for World Oceans Day.

Bags of rubbish can be dropped off at the Sealife front desk until June 5 and, in return, donors will receive a free kids pass.

Sealife is on Blackpool Promenade.
