Take 3 for the Sea Part 2

This post is about what we collected in week 2 and week 3 of our Take 3 for the Sea Project, I have also listed some changes and similarities I noticed between the beginning and the end of the project.

Some changes we have noticed between the beginning and the end:

  • The plovers I mentioned in the Take 3 for the Sea Project introduction are either not here or are keeping to themselves because they have not been swooping us, luckily.
  • The only day it rained when we were collecting rubbish was in the start of the project.
  • There were more strong winds towards the end of the project.
  • About 10 – 15 dead and exhausted  shearwaters washed up on the beach towards the end of the project.

Some similarities I have noticed between the beginning and the end:

  • We have seemed to pick up the same amount of rubbish each day.
  • The road to the ranger base we live at always has tiny pieces of rubbish on it that are being continually uncovered by the movement of the sand.
  • We seem to see lots of animal foot prints (including dingoes, seabirds and crabs)  each time we went.

  1. It’s very interesting that as the sand moves more rubbish is uncovered. That really puts the problem into perspective for me. It just goes to show how much ‘we’ leave behind on this earth.
    Another great article Kailani!

  2. I’m really amazed at the amount of rubbish you have picked up and that’s only a tiny part of the island. It makes me think about what is floating around out there.
