Main Beach, WarnamboolVictoria
This September the Warrnambool Marine Debris team will be returning to Main Beach to give it a Spring Clean.
You can join the team and assist in preventing rubbish from entering our beautiful Ocean.
Plastic Pollution is a significant threat to our oceans, silently killing marine life. Beach cleans are a great opportunity to raise awareness of the issues we face, and help to minimise harm.
The team will be setting up at McGennans carpark
Access to the carpark is via Pertrobe Rd
Everyone is welcome, please invite your family and friends.
Don’t forget to wear enclosed shoes, a hat, sunscreen and bring water in a reusable bottle (no single use plastic bottles please).
If you have reusable gloves, please bring them along.
For the oceans!
About Sea Shepherd marine debris campaign
Marine debris is choking our oceans, creating a devastating impact on marine ecosystems world-wide. The Australian coastline is where three of the world's great ocean's meet: the Pacific, Indian and Southern Oceans.
Marine debris is harmful to marine life and can have catastrophic and often fatal results. It can cause injury or death through drowning, injury through entanglement and internal injuries, or starvation following ingestion.
Large percentages of fish now contain man made debris plastic or fibrous material, which absorbs toxins that consumers of seafood digest.
Birds, sharks, turtles, dolphins and whales are the innocent victims of marine debris. Australia’s CSIRO has warned that 99 per cent of the world's seabirds species will be ingesting plastic by 2050 if current marine pollution trends continue.
We can’t do this alone. Join Sea Shepherd Australia’s Marine Debris Campaign to protect and conserve our marine environment, preventing and removing the unprecedented amount of marine debris entering our oceans and waterways.
