Arun East

Beach Group - Rustington

WHAT DOES THE GROUP DO?:
Keeping the beach clean is vital for the welfare of all sea and coast creatures, to prevent them from being harmed by plastics and nets etc., but that is only one function of the group.
We will also monitor the numbers of Undulate Ray Egg Cases to highlight their welfare to the Sharks Trust in Plymouth. This involves collecting all the egg cases, identifying the type and sending results to the Sharks Trust.
Rustington Beach is famous for having the most Undulate Rays living out to sea, yards from our beach. We hope to educate the public on the following:

1.The cruelty of dredging the sea depths and the short sightedness of scraping miles of sea bottom, hunting one specific fish and having a by-catch of thousands.
2.The importance of cherishing all forms of life.
3.The opportunity to recycle debris where we can.
4.Co-operation with other voluntary groups who care for the sea.
5.Highlighting the harm that ghost fishing does (discarded nets and pots continuing to trap fish - forever).
6.Spreading the word about corporate pollution, e.g. Microbeads and the Five Gyres

Each member can choose a part of Rustington Beach, say one or two breakwaters wide,
to care for and clean whenever they are able. This gives freedom to the members and can keep the beaches clean. Members can partake in beach cleaning, or collecting egg cases or anything else we may be involved in, as often or as seldom as they want.

We give talks when asked.
