I am living in Peregian on the Sunshine Coast for the next 5 weeks assisting with research on humpback whale behaviour. As we are just doing training this week, which gives me a couple of hours in the morning to run / walk along the beautiful beach.
Yesterday as I was running I noticed loads of plastic washed up from recent storms, so walked back to collect it all.
And I also found 2 cigarette butts. . .heaps better than the 13 I found on Noosa beach but more than I ever find in New Zealand!
