When we are looking deeply into the problems of litter getting into our oceans and killing the marine wildlife, it all starts from people throwing it on the floor. The next area we look at is our rivers, they flow into our oceans eventually, yes?

One day i went to my local beach, and was upset to see rubbish that had washed up onto the beach, from god knows where. All i could think about it the turtles, tropical fish, rays etc. It was mixed with old fishing line, broken thongs, general plastic and alcohol packaging! I cleaned it up straight away and filled two bags full.

In Queensland we have thousands of parks/camping areas and hang out spots by rivers/oceans/lakes. I am 100% sure, not many if even 50% have a single decent sized bin (wheelie bin) to offer for rubbish disposal. This means a small percent are carting it home with them, and a huge percentage are leaving it in the car parks, on the grass or at tables. This means all the rubbish left behind at every single one of those parks are going into the river and into our ocean and killing our marine life!

Sign this petition, to get Malcolm Turnbull to give every riverside park at least a single wheelie bin for rubbish, with frequent collection days, to save our marine life one step and state at a time! They wont survive unless we step in!
