On Sunday 2 March, the SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium conservation team, T.R.A.C.K.S were gloved-up and determined to lend a helping hand for National Clean Up Australia Day.
Together with around 40 volunteers, the team got their hands dirty picking up approximately 12 bags of rubbish from Batman and Enterprise Parks. Cigarette buts, fast food packaging and drink bottles were among the most collected items from the banks of the Yarra River, with the team also finding a plastic toy gun and a bone!
The T.R.A.C.K.S team are not only devoted to keeping the environment clean, but also ensuring the marine animals that call these habitats home are kept safe.
Stay tuned for upcoming conservation initiates from the T.R.A.C.K.S conservation warriors.
