Doing our part for the ocean! -

Students and staff from the Marine Science Department and NZ Whale & Dolphin Trust got involved with a coastal clean-up at Smaill's Beach last Saturday. The event was organised by the Yellow-Eyed Penguin Trust and Our Seas Our Future, supported by the Dunedin City Council.

As part of an army of volunteers (mostly first year students from University of Otago) we removed over a TON of rubbish from the coastal bush bordering the beach. This will help to restore important habitat used by coastal wildlife such as penguins and sea lions, and prevent the rubbish ending up in the ocean
