We kicked off the first day of cleaning Tassie's wildest beaches today.
We jumped off our boats, and into rubber dinghies and landed on Noyhener Beach with two bags each. Matt Dell, our Clean Up Captain, briefed us on our mission: shoreline debris. We spread out and started combing the beach, covering it with footprints, and soon had hauled in a decent load of rubbish, everything from big plastic barrels to tiny pieces of micro plastics.
Some of the animals we spotted today included dolphins, seals, shy albatross, mutton birds, and hooded plovers. We knew other animals had visited the beach not too long ago, because we saw tracks of Tasmanian devils and birds of prey.
