Call for Volunteers - Great Nurdle Hunt
Nurdles are the raw ingredient for the majority of plastic products, easily mistaken by marine animals and seabirds as food. COAST is collaborating with the The Great Nurdle Hunt who will be using information from citizen scientists to understand their abundancy and distribution to make the case to the plastics industry and government . If you would like to volunteer on Arran, read more information here about the project and how to sign up. A training day will be held on Friday 29th April.
