A GROUP of young environmentalists from Wester Ross was recognised for the members' efforts in cleaning local beaches at a community award. The Ullapool Sea Savers received the Community Initiative Award at the Highland Third Sector Interface awards 2022 for their remote beach cleans and beach clean uplifts.

The group, who have previously appeared on TV with Prince William and on Autumnwatch, have previously campaigned on a number of environmental and wildlife issues and worked on campaigns to reduce litter and clean up streets and beaches around Ullapool and the North West.

They took over running the boat following the end of the Living Seas Project in Ullapool and use it to survey wildlife, take out people who can’t normally access the sea and boats, and to do remote beach cleans and pick-ups in places on the coast that are either hard to access or difficult to remove rubbish from by foot or car.
