World Oceans Day Beach Clean-up

SAAMBR staff were joined by learners from Ridge Park College, Pitlochry Primary, members of the Radisson Blu Committee, locals and visitors on the uShaka Beach to celebrate World Oceans Day by picking up litter.

The uShaka Beach section of the Durban promenade was buzzing with enthusiastic ocean ambassadors who managed to collect 34 bags of litter in a very short period. Often when we look at the beach it appears to be clean but when we look really closely, we notice thousands of small plastic nurdles in and on the sand. This wonderful group of ocean ambassadors managed to pick up in excess of 1200 nurdles in just 2 hours.

Thank you everyone who joined the World Oceans Day Beach-Cleanup – we look forward to seeing you at the next beach cleanup planned for September.
