Clean Up Australia Day

Melbourne Aquarium staff brave the heat for Clean Up Australia Day 2013

On Sunday 3 March, a dedicated team of Melbourne Aquarium staff braved the heat and headed down to St Kilda Beach in a bid to help keep Australia’s oceans clean.

 

The team got their hands dirty picking up more than 100 bottle caps and 500 cigarette butts from the site, with an estimated 25 kilograms of waste collected in total. Fast food packaging, straws and alcohol bottles also among the biggest items collected on the day, with the team also finding a vacuum cleaner!

 

Our fun-loving mascots, Sharkie and Annie even popped down from the aquarium to help pick up some rubbish!

 

Melbourne Aquarium is extremely dedicated to sustaining the environment. Pollution and rubbish is not only unsafe for beachgoers, but is also a danger to the amazing aquatic animals that call our oceans, and bay, home.

 

Over the past few years, Melbourne Aquarium has successfully rescued and rehabilitated many turtles after having been found washed up and stranded on Victorian beaches.
