The beautiful weather helped draw nearly 40 adults, teens and children out to Ricketts Point for a great cleanup. We even had two new-born twins strapped to mum and dad. Lots of small plastics were collected, and even though not all buckets were full to the top, every small piece of rubbish collected means one more marine animal is potentially saved from ingesting it. So, a great job by all!

We even had two new-born twins strapped to mum and dad. Lots of small plastics were collected, and even though not all buckets were full to the top, every small piece of rubbish collected means one more marine animal is potentially saved from ingesting it. So, a great job by all!

We had some chilly, windy conditions for our clean this month - and a little rain. That didn't stop more than 32 people braving the elements to clean up the beach and carpark around Beaumaris Life Saving Club. Great to see so many kids and local students taking an enthusiastic interest in their beach and bay.

Last Saturday, we had 26 volunteers out on the beaches near the Beaumaris Yacht Club, Ricketts Point. Together we collected 14 bags of rubbish in total, roughly 30 Kg of litter. A lot of small plastic items were collected, most common being fragments, wrappers, polystyrene and cigarette butts (roughly 650). I couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous morning for my last beach clean as coordinator, I really am grateful to have been a part of BP and MCRP and again so lovely to see lots of you!
