Report by Napranum Ranger Ebony Doyle.
On Friday 30th of September and Saturday the 1st of October the Napranum rangers, with the help of the Napranum Aboriginal Council and Tangaroa Blue, an Australian non-profit charity for the wellbeing of our oceans, organised a community clean-up in Napranum along the foreshore between 9am and 11:30am.
On Friday a total of 12 people pitched in, the most collected item was fishing line, with a total of 1100m of line removed from around the local boat ramp. On Saturday 8 people pitched in on cleaning up Napranum’s foreshore & the most collected item was aluminum cans with a total of over 2000 cans counted!
Days of cleaning up rubbish are good deeds but it’s important to not only care for our community by not trashing it by leaving behind our waste, but to look at the bigger picture and respect our planet, the lives of the people in countries our rubbish may wash up on, and the lives of other species, particularly in this case the marine life who value the life they live and deserve to be respected, Also do you want to be eating fish who eat rubbish?
