BP 3280 Covering the Warrnambool and Port Fairy Beaches

3280 Beach Patrol

We live on the rugged shipwreck coast of SW Victoria. During summer our beaches are populated by holiday makers, sunbathers and SLC’s. During winter the waters off Warrnambool are a nursery to the southern right whale. We have a little Penguin Colony and Hooded Plovers and other migratory shore birds nest on our beaches. 

In November 2017, 1,000,000s of Nurdles polluted our local beaches and as a community we came together to clean them up; collecting all the other marine debris that washes up along our coastline along the way.  

We meet up as a group on the first Saturday of the month. Please join our Facebook group or email list for details of our next beach clean-up.

Always surprised with the amount of littler we collect. A cursory glance, and you'd think the beach was clean but what lies beneath the undergrowth and around public access areas reveals a lot and is not always pretty! Thanks again to Shire of Moyne for supporting the Event. Awesome job BP volunteers who helped on the day!  Collected from Port Fairy Little East Beach 24.9 Kg
