In the early 90's it was discovered that over one-third of the local pelican population in Ballina, Australia was hooked, entangled, crippled and suffering infection. Most of them could still fly but their bodies suffered immensely due to irresponsible recreational fishers. Since then, "Australian Seabird Rescue" has rescued thousands of birds, removed hooks, untangled fishing lines and educated about how plastic pollution affects our precious wildlife. "Northern Beaches Clean Up Crew" come across fishing hooks and disregarded fishing line on nearly all our clean ups - join us in our fight for a cleaner local environment! No one can do everything but everyone all do something!
