SEA LIFE Melbourne Dive Deep For Clean Up Australia Day!

Clean Up Australia Day

Today the team, along with their friends from Harbour Dive Mornington took to the oceans to kick off the Clean Up Australia Day weekend.

The team donned their regulators and flippers with collection bags in hand as they dove deep for the ultimate underwater clean up around Rye pier.

Volunteers scoured the beach and nearby park areas, collecting trash and spreading the word about ocean conservation while the snorkel and scuba squad collected trash from the sea to promote and support Clean Up Australia Day.

Ocean conservation is a key priority for SEA LIFE Melbourne, pollution is a major issue for local wild life and we would like to help prevent the problem in the first place. Not many people get to see what is lying on the ocean floor but ocean health has a huge effect on our eco-system, making it just as important to keep clean as our streets and parks.

We ecourage everyone to take part in Clean Up Australia Day, by joining an official group or focusing on your own street, every bit counts.

Clean Up Australia Day, Sunday 5th March, originated in 1989, over the past 26 years, Australians have devoted more than 31 million hours and collected over 331 thousand tonnes of rubbish.

Those hoping to get involved on Sunday for the official Clean Up Australia Day can join the SEA LIFE crew at Batman Park, Melbourne, register online at http://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au
