From an early cold April start it has been a pretty busy and successful year on the NARC front. Highlights have included 9 clean-up events already in the bag stretching from the North to the South of Pembrokeshire, more details here http://www.narc-cc.org.uk/narc-in-action/2013-2/ We have also been delighted to link in with some fantastic projects along the way – Check out Bioblitz , Plastic Oceans , Ghostfishing
We are also incredibly pleased to form a partnership with Folly Farm linked in with their new state of the art Penguin enclosure which will help raise awareness of marine litter and NARC to 100,000 s of people. On the awareness raising front we have a huge opportunity on the horizon with the BBCs One Show filming with us this month. Keep an eye on the Narc in Action page for more details.
A big thanks to our funders for 2013 including Environment Wales, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Folly Farm.
