It was a bright and breezy start to our final beach cleanup of the year on 29 September 2018. 72 volunteers joined Guardians of the S.E.A.A. in clearing 117.5kg of trash from Tanah Merah Beach Site 7.
There was significantly less trash collected from this cleanup, compared to our previous cleanup on 28 July. Some possible reasons might include another group cleaning up the area just 2 weeks earlier, or even a waning of the Southwest monsoon (Jun – Sep).
And here’s 7-year-old Chloe Xilei, a primary one student at Canberra Primary School.
Not only did she participate in the beach cleanup, she was so inspired by the experience that she created this amazing drawing.
It’s heartening to know that Guardians of the S.E.A.A. has inspired people as young as Chloe to care for our ocean. This alone drives us to continue organising such meaningful activities to educate and engage everyone.
So if you wish to join us at our future beach clean ups and other conservation-related activities and events, sign up as a Guardian of the S.E.A.A. if you haven’t already.
This October, we have planned a very special conservation night at the S.E.A. Aquarium and it’ll be a lot of fun for the whole family. Stay tuned for details to be released soon!
