The volunteers current and new kept turning up at our monthly beach clean.   About 43 people came out.  A great sight to see all the blue 3207 Tee shirts spread all over the beach making it spotless.

Our decision to delay our September clean up for one week was a winner; the sun's rays warmed us as we cleaned our beautiful beach!  Thanks to our great team the beach was looking cleaner and healthier by 10am.  It was great to see a few new faces and always a pleasure to connect with our regular members too!  Although the weight collected this month was relatively low, we all found that our clean up time was spent picking up little pieces, often tiny fragments of plastics or cigarette butts.  This is the stuff that does so much harm to our marine life, both in the water and the coastal bird life too.  Well done team and fingers crossed for some more beautiful spring sunshine at our October clean up.

The August clean up of Elwood beach was a real show stopper and not in a good way.  In one hour our volunteers collected almost 90kg of litter!  The beach was in the worst condition we had ever found it.   Sadly this reflects what state both the bay and our streets are in as the large volume of litter was likely a result of winter rain washing a whole lot of crap from the surrounding burbs onto our beaches.  During other months, even though we don't see as much litter on the beach, it is still likely to be out there on surrounding streets.  It just takes some hefty stormwater to bring it to the beach and ultimately the bay.  Although it was a sad sight, our team did an amazing job of clearing such a tremendous volume of rubbish and keeping it from reaching the marine life in Port Phillip Bay.  Great work team!

On a chilly August morning over 30 volunteers came out to clean the Sandridge Beach.  At this time of the year (winter) the winds are predominately off shore hence there is little litter washing in onto the beach.  Plus there are next to no beach goers, so the main part of the beach is quite clean as well.
