This video takes a look at an important issue affecting wildlife in Moreton Bay; litter and discarded debris. Common items of rubbish, such as plastic shopping bags, forgotten crab pots and bottle caps have a disastrous effect on marine life. While some rubbish is washed into the sea from distant locations, other rubbish in our waters is the result of litter bugs; people not disposing of their rubbish responsibly. This eventually finds its way into the water and kills many beautiful marine animals. Accompanied by a blistering electric guitar piece, Troy Robbins presents some photographs of what he has found during his regular clean-ups of the bay. Get in on the act and help stop rubbish from getting into our bay wherever you find it!
