Award-winning charity has recived a funding boost to continue collecting marine litter off the Pembrokeshire coast
NARC can be found at a number of sites along the coastline collecting litter that is often having a negative impact on the habitat and the wildlife it supports. Everything from shopping trolleys, car batteries, bikes, fishing tackle and quite literally the kitchen sink are removed by divers and recycled where possible. Please follow the links to find out more about us including what we find, images of marine litter and environmental impacts, how you can get involved, past and upcoming clean-up events and some tips that will minimise tackle loss when angling in Pembrokeshire. Make sure you check out the news page, events calendar and our videos.
“NARC volunteers do a superb job of clearing the seabed of litter including miles of angling line, bucket loads of lead weights and 100’s of fishing pots. The litter if not cleared can kill and damage marine life. Public awareness of the damage caused by marine litter is needed and NARC plays a key role in promoting the awareness through their work.”

“NARC have made an invaluable contribution to the Pride in Our Communities project within bbbbPembrokeshire. They have raised the awareness of the problem of fly-tipping around our waterways and undertaken activities to clean up the mess. The divers have willingly and consistently given their time to help improve our local environment.”
