3941Beachpatrol Covering Tootgarook Beaches

3941Tootgarook Beach Patrol

Tootgarook foreshore is a beautiful beach environment that houses many species of native flora and fauna vital for the ecosystem to survive. Being such a beautiful beach, it is frequently visited and more often than not, people do not take their rubbish home with them leaving countless harmful objects in this natural place. On any one visit it is likely you will see cigarette butts, alcohol containers, plastic bags and an assortment of lightweight litter.

If the rubbish is left there without being disposed of correctly then it poses risk to the native species that dwell in this area along with the sealife which is why it is important that attention be paid to this site as it will provide benefits to not only the wildlife but also beach goers who so frequently utilise the site. If you wish to participate our cleans are to be run every 4th Sunday of the month.     Just one hour can make a difference.

3941Tootgarook ninth clean February 11 2017 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

5 Volunteers came out to help us on a cool summers day. We found less than expected but we did collect a record of over 300 cigarette butts.

3941Tootgarook eighth clean November 19 2017 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

Overall, we had 11 volunteers sweat it out in mid twenties weather who collected almost 50kgs of rubbish with 120 recyclable containers! It was a very successful clean.

3941Tootgarook seventh clean May 2017 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

We had 13 people join us for our Seventh clean with even more fresh faces. It was a cool day but that didn't stop us from working hard although we felt as though there wasn't as much rubbish as there usually is. Hopefully that's a good sign :) We recently received a very generous donation of 20 pairs of gloves, 20 buckets and 20 pick up sticks from Bunnings in Rosebud and we'd really like to thank them for their support. In this case we chose to use the buckets rather than the bags to prolong their life and we managed to pick up 15 buckets worth of rubbish so roughly 60kgs!!


We look forward to the next clean :)
