3016 August Clean Up - Wader Beach
written by Scabduty....

Thanks everyone that came out to another great team up Winter clean up at Jawbone Marine Sanctuaries, Wader beach.
We had a total of 90 legendary volunteers that picked up over 30bags worth of the usual suspects: straws, #bottlecaps#plasticbags #Nurdles #bottles...the same old story really. Lots of small buried fragments in the washed up sea grasses. We had a big clean up here in March 2016, were 130 volunteers cleaned up over 1tonne in 1 hour. Less than 5 months later we are back with close too just as much rubbish!

3016 July Clean Up
It was a cold and blustery morning in Williamstown but that didn't phase 10 amazing volunteers who braved the very chilly conditions for our monthly beach cleanup! 8 bags of rubbish, plenty of recyclables and more than 150 cigarette butts made up today's collection. We think that's a pretty awesome effort!

3198 Seaford August Beach clean
Well done team on braving the wild elements last Sunday and making it along to our August beach clean. Karma was working in our favour with the rain stopping shortly before our clean, we managed to remain dry while cleaning 36kg of rubbish off the beach near Keast Park. An astounding 72 bottles and cans were picked up, with the endless amount of straws and small pieces of plastic it was hard to finish up after only an hour.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol August 2016 Clean Up

To this day, I',m not sure if it is because we are doing good for our community and our planet ,or, we are just pure lucky, but we did it again - we dodged the rain!
That's not to say we had the perfect day however, as 27 amazing people still had to brave chilling winds to bring back an impressive 20 bags weighing 43kgs collectively. It's one thing to get out there and clean up after somebody else, but to do it on a day like today, and voluntarily I might add, this team of caring people should be commended on their efforts yet again!
We also had the pleasure of having members of Sea Shepherd along as well, further showing that it doesn't matter who you are or where you're from, if we all work together, we can make a positive difference to our planet's health. 
Don't forget to put our next clean on your calendars too - Saturday, September 17, 10am, Meeting at Well's St Beach, just near Frankston Surf Life Saving Club/Waves on the Beach.

A big thank you to our sponsors and supporters as always;
