Students from Abu Dhabi schools and universities.

What in the world is a Nurdle? Nurdles are small plastic pellets used in the manufacturing of plastic products. Due to spills and mishandling, they often end up in the ocean, causing harm to marine life.

The Great Nurdle Hunt is a fun and educational event where volunteers will compete in teams to collect nurdles from the Park Hyatt Saadiyat beach in this unique variation of a beach clean up, while learning about the impact of plastic pollution on our environment.   

The Nurdle Hunt event is part of NYUAD’s Service Kashtah program. Service Kashtah events aim to instill greater social responsibility and compassionate leadership by connecting NYUAD with the wider UAE community through the spirit of service, what we call “#NYUADheart”. For 2018, we are honoring the UAE’s Year of Zayed with an environmental focus.
