3016 August Jawbone Marine Sanctuary Clean UP
Wader beach is for Birds not Rubbish!
Thank you everyone that helped out over the weekend! What a ripper weekend it was!!
Over the weekend ScabDuty and 3016 Beach Patrol Williamstown teamed up with 'Friends Of Wader Beach' to remove as much litter as we could from the shoreline of Waderbeach in two days. We rallied over 60 awesome volunteers from the general public and from community groups around the Williamstown area they ended up filling a 12 cubic metre skip bin with over 47 tyres, plastic bottles, fishing gear, straws, rope, food containers etc.

The Elwood beach patrol had an enjoyable clean up in the spring sunshine last Saturday.  Our twenty-strong volunteer force collected 15kg of litter including a few treasures such as a discarded key and an intact wine glass (which was returned to the restaurant for re-use).  It was a beautiful morning and we look forward to our next beach clean up activity as spring progresses.

August saw 5 volunteers collect 38.5kgs of rubbish. You'd think we'd be running low on bottles and cans by now but still collected 106.

There was still a lot of plastic wrappers to be found but luckily we still have some vegetation to trap it before it gets blown into the bay.

Aug 15 Aspendale Beach Patrol steps up education role and joins forces with Aspendale Primary

On Friday August 14, over 35 Aspendale Primary grade Six students, led by their teacher, Lisa Phillips went across to Aspendale Beach to volunteer about 30 mins of their sustainability class time to assess and collect litter from the beach.

Aspendale is a beautiful beach and is normally quite clean in comparison to other bay beaches. However after returning to class and investigating further what each student collected , they were amazed at the array of litter. " so much plastic' , so many lids"  was one comment .

Students took photographs and weighed each bag collected and sorted through all the litter on a table to gain a better understanding of exactly what was collected.

then....

Sunday August 16, over 18 super dooper volunteers joined us on the beach at 9 am at Hearle Ave.







It was a lovely morning and after such a cold few weeks it was great to see so many smiling faces.

A few new volunteers and lots of kids was great to see.

We covered quite a large area today as we had a few people and we would like to add the Schools data to ours  for the month of August.
