For the month of Febuary our volunenterrs undertook 17 beach clean-ups at 5 sites between Warrnambool and Port Fairy and removed 1677 pieces of rubbish (48.7kg) from our beautiful beaches. Our monthly group clean-up was at Little East Beach, Port Fairy. Despite the rain we still got a great turn out.
Thanks to everyone who turned up to our Little East Beach Clean Up in February
Always surprised with the amount of littler we collect. A cursory glance, and you'd think the beach was clean but what lies beneath the undergrowth and around public access areas reveals a lot and is not always pretty! Thanks again to Shire of Moyne for supporting the Event. Awesome job BP volunteers who helped on the day! All data has been entered on AMDI on the Tangaroa Blue website.
