Big Beach Clean and MCS survey

This week we welcomed 60 children from Our Lady's Primary school in Perth to undertake a big Beach Clean and MCS survey. The children have been learning about the impact of marine plastic on wildlife and the marine environment. The timing of their visit could not have been better as the 'Beast from the East' brought in an unprecednted amount of marine litter. On Saturday we lifted all the heavy items and on Tuesday the children collected hundreds of small items including, plastic, cloth, bottles, cotton bud sticks, net and rope. Every item was carefully recorded and weighed. At the end of the day the children had collected 24 kilos of litter. It was a wonderful day and all involved had a brilliant time. Well done to all the children from Our Lady's.
