Peregian beach, Sunshine Coast, Australia!

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!

I went to check the surf early this morning, there wasn’t any! So I strolled along the beach to check if there were any little peelers by the breakwater. I thought I may as well walk along the strand line to see if there was any plastic. Noosa is surprisingly clean for such a busy beach, but there were LOADS of cigarette butts! Smoking NEEDS to be banned from beaches!
