3199 BeachPatrol Covering the Frankston Beaches

3199 BeachPatrol
A finalist in several Keep Australia Beautiful's Clean Beach Awards as well as being named Victoria's Most Popular Beach, Frankston also plays host to the IRONMAN Asia-Pacific Championship and is home to Sand Sculpting Australia. 

With the assistance of Frankston City Council, 3199 Beach Patrol was founded in March 2015 With a view to sustain our local beach environment whilst protecting our delicate and unique Port Phillip marine ecosystem. 

3199 Beach Patrol's group of dedicated volunteers meet on the third Saturday of each month to clean our much loved Frankston beach. We provide a friendly and rewarding opportunity for people of all ages to participate in not only making a visual difference, but also helping to protect Port Phillip.

3199 October Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

They say when you're on a good thing, stick to it. Well, we've certainly done that when it comes to the weather. Yes, for the 5 consecutive month, we've had the luxury of a good day. Having said that, I think today was the most overcast day we've had, but 24 of us remained dry as we set up on the Northern end of Frankston's award winning beaches.

Nurdles, plastic fragment and cigarette butts were the biggest offenders today. The children who came along certainly had fun with finding and counting the Nurdles too!

Thanks to the other 23 dedicated members who came along including some new faces as well as our regulars, which is always great to see.

A big thank you also to Rob and Rebecca at Aum Shanti who looked after us with their hospitality as always after the clean. It's such a great atmosphere there!


3199 Frankston Beach Patrol September Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

Our September clean up saw another perfect day as we tackled the Oliver's Hill area.



We didn't hit the 100Kg target that I had thought we'd get, but that's a good thing! It means that between us, Frankston City Council and all the other dedicated local residents, the litter is slowly but surely being removed making Frankston's beaches clean, safer and healthier for our precious marine environment. It was also great not to see any syringes about meaning our dedicated team, the community and marine wildlife were not subjected to the potential risk associated with the aforementioned.



A huge thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors and supporters, for without you, this would not be possible.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol August Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

 

 The sun gods were on our side once again as 43 wonderful people joined us for our August beach clean up. Of the 43 people, 10 were from Coles Services, the team responsible for the cleanliness and trolleys at Coles Supermarkets. 



Together, we collected just over 71Kgs of litter. This was mostly made up of plastic litter including straws, coffee cup lids, chip packets and even a 10Kg piece of Poly water pipe which had evidence of propeller damage suggesting it’s been out in the bay and hit by a number of marine craft potentially putting those on board’s lives at risk. So as you can see, it’s not just marine wildlife who’s lives we are possibly saving but also that of our fellow man!
