Of the six week programme, the Trust is responsible for two sessions. The first, a beach cleanup, held on the 12th November 2010, saw the twenty chosen pupils of Blompark Primary, meet at the Great White House for a quick talk on marine pollution followed by a practical session on the beach collecting waste and analysing where it comes from, while filling in data sheets. That which could be recycled was done so upon return. The children were also told more on the research being done in the area on the various species.
