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.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol August Clean Up

 

 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!
