I'm on holidays at South West Rocks with my family and some friends but I still make time to help preserve the environment. Today we went to two different beaches and cleaned them up while we were there.
The first beach we went to was Trial Bay (above) and collected 150 pieces of rubbish. Including glass bottles, shatted glass, plastic bottles, cans, over 100m of fishing line, fishing lure, plastic bags and plastic packaging just to name a few.
The second beach we went to was Horseshoe Bay (above) and we collected a shocking 291 pieces of rubbish. This included a lot of styrofoam (When it breaks down into the small balls lots of animals can mistake them as fish eggs and eat them), Plastic cups, plastic packaging, a frisby, thongs, half a sauce bottle, cigarettes, plastic bags and cans just to name a few.
Unfortunately not one Australian beach is rubbish free. One thing that every day people can do to help stop this is to have a clean up at your local beach. It doesn't have to be a massive clean up it could just be with your friends or family.

This month’s conservation interview is on Tinker Frogs. Believe it or not Amphibians are actually the world's most endangered group of animals! Thats right even more than mammals, birds and reptiles. Their threats range from a infectious disease that kills them in weeks called chytrid fungus to pollution, feral species and habitat destruction. Learn about Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary's role in helping save Tinker Frogs and what every day people can do to help save them. Check out the interview with Michael below.
