Aberdeen volunteers turned out in force this month to take part in a beach clean as part of RSPB Scotland’s four-day Dolphinwatch Carnival.

Plastic bags, straws, fast food packaging, clothing and discarded metal were among the materials collected during the clean-up.

The initiative is co-funded by the ScottishPower Foundation and aims to engage people with marine wildlife conservation.

Sadie Gorvett, Dolphinwatch community events officer for RSPB Scotland said: “It’s great to see such an enthusiastic turn out for our Dolphinwatch beach clean and it shows that people are on board with protecting local wildlife.”

ScottishPower Foundation has donated more than £80,000 to RSPB Scotland for Dolphinwatch to fund activities including 12 beach cleans, 10 school group visits, training 10 new volunteers and hosting 10 community events throughout the year.
