Nurdle Hunt Spring 2022

8-11 AM WHERE Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat WHO NYUAD Community Outreach Open to the Public

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 Saadiyat beach in this unique variation of a beach clean-up, while learning about the impact of plastic pollution on our environment.
