The Great Global Nurdle Hunt 1st-31st October

The Great Global Nurdle Hunt 🌎 is back! Join us 1st- 31st October 2023 and celebrate over 10 years of nurdle hunting!


Save the date in your diaries and join us this October to learn more about nurdle pollution all around the world, how nurdles impact your area and how to join calls to stop this pollution.

If you're new to the hunt, The Great Global Nurdle Hunt is our annual event, which asks organisations and individuals to organise nurdle hunts at the same time all around the world to draw attention to this issue and collect a snapshot of data on global plastic pellet pollution.


Thank you 

This year we will be celebrating everyone who has made the Nurdle Hunt what it is today. We want to showcase the amazing volunteer efforts from the last 10 years and inspire more people to get involved to make this the biggest nurdle hunt ever.

We are hoping the event and results this year can support calls to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to have pellets reclassified as harmful goods, the organisations who are involved in the Global Plastics Treaty and the wider work on pellet solutions. 


How to get involved  

Over September we will be sharing resources and hosting a webinar on nurdle hunting and how to get involved in our citizen science project across October. So make sure you're signed up to our newsletter, and follow us on facebook, instagram and twitter to get all the latest information.

In the meantime if you, your organisation or community has been impacted by nurdle pollution and want to be part of the solution to pellet pollution visit our hub
