A successful beach clean up at Camp Cove, Sydney with nearly 40 bottles, 30 straws and almost 40kg of plastics and other material collected for rubbish from the ocean seabed. It was a sad reminder of how fragile the environment is and how huge our impact is on this planet. The best bit was seeing how many children on the beach wanted to join in - there is hope!
When collecting rubbish from the ocean, always check what might be inside, in case that rubbish is a creature's home. We found this little blue ring octopus inside one of the glass bottles collected, and safely released it back to the ocean.
