Saturday the 18th of September 2010 was dedicated to a 3 hours cleanup on Long Beach in Noordhoek.


12 learners from the Masiphumelele branch, fully equipped with yellow bags, have been tracking abandoned rubbishes from human activities. Last year, they counted 3 600 different types of objects. Among those items they all found products that humans denigrated to put into a bin.


From glass bottles to heaters, passing through cotton buds, or lollipop sticks, plastic bags, wood logs, are the daily life of migratory and local birds.
