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 third clean August 16 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

Although it was a little rough weather wise, this clean was our best turnout we've had so far. With 22 people we managed to collect 72 glass bottles, 24 plastic bottles and over 600 pieces of plastic. Thank you to everyone who came and especially those who have returned for their second clean, the help is greatly appreciated!

3941Tootgarook second clean July 16 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

Our second clean had a smaller turnout but we still managed to get a lot done and there was a lot of rubbish on the foreshore since the high winds from the previous few days. There were fresh faces at this clean and hopefully they stick around.

3941Tootgarook first clean June 16 by tootgarook3941@beachpatrol.com.au

16 people turned up and overall it was a huge success. The main type of rubbish we found appeared to be alcohol containers and it was good to see the kids getting into the thick of it.
