October 13, 2010 by dyertrust
Sheraine fromOverstrand Conservation Foundationwho run the eco-school programme, brought 30 pupils from Okkie Smuts School (Stanford) to theDyer Island Cruiseswhale room where they learnt all about marine pollution and its devastating impacts on our marine life before heading down to Kleinbaai harbour for the clean up.
On their return the waste collected was weighed and counted to be collated and sent to the International Ocean Conservancy statistics. Then what could be recycled was processed into the recycling bins that the Trust manages.
Overall, a very successful morning, with the pupils having a new appreciation of their impact on the environment.
