A few of our onshore volunteers spent their drizzly, cold Sunday morning down in kayaks on the Yarra River doing an impromptu cleanup last weekend. Several bags of rubbish were removed from the riverbanks of the Yarra, with items including a car tyre, a curtain rod, children’s toys, tennis balls, tonnes of plastic water bottles, and countless disposable coffee cups.
This is what a few people can achieve in a couple of hours. Everyone can make a difference – Grab some friends and hold your own cleanup in your local area, or better yet join us on the 21st May for the Melbourne: Beach Clean Up: Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign down at St Kilda beach.
Join us in our mission to keep our waterways and oceans debris-free!
