The children wearing their Coastwatch T.shirts grabbed a rubbish bag and started filling it with the rubbish which hampers the beaches and coastline in Calvia. Along the way, all the children also completed a table which asked for a lot of detailed information on the beach they were working on, such as the access to the beach, state of the beach, what vegetation and fauna there is on the beach, the number of rubbish bags filled and the main type of rubbish collected. It was found during the day that the majority of beach rubbish is a variety of bottles, plastic plates, cigarette ends and condoms. The table they all completed helps compare the state of the beaches with previous years. A new feature for this year was a photograph competition. Cinema tickets and trips to the Cabrera National Park were awarded for the best photographs.
In addition, these photographs will now been shown in various council buildings.
In groups, the participants helped remove tonnes of rubbish from the beaches in Palmanova, Magalluf, Santa Ponsa and Caló d'en Pallicer.
After the collection, they all met at Santa Ponsa beach to discuss their experiences and also to play a few games before heading home.
