Eco Marine Talks -Marine Pollution Solutions Saturday 28 September 2019 02:00pm

Fishing line bin

14h00 - 14h30

 Marine Pollution - there are solutions

Fishing Line Bin Project

Dearest  Mr Fisherman,

 Please listen to my plea

Don’t discard your fishing line

Directly in the sea

It wraps around my flipper

It tangles dolphin fins

 So when you’ve finished fishing

Chuck your line into the bins

Storm Water Drain Net

DICT has been doing beach clean-ups for 20 years. 80% of the litter is plastic.

In collaboration with Overstrand Municipality, they have installed trash traps in Gansbaai -

the success is already making a difference.
