Frankston Seaside Scavenge

A recent study estimated that more than half of the world's turtles have plastic in their stomach. Help reduce the amount of waste entering our oceans by joining us at the Frankston Seaside Scavenge beach clean-up festival!

At this event you can use your TRASH 4 CASH, the litter you collect along the beach is traded for a festival currency. Use this currency to buy second hand clothes, coffee, face-painting and more.

The winter Seaside Scavenge will also have LIVE MUSIC from local artists, and local NGO's and community groups to visit and chat about their work to protect marine life and reduce waste.

The event will be hosted by marine mammal protection group, Action for Dolphins.

The on-shore beach clean will be conducted by marine conservation organisations Sea Shepherd Australia - Marine Debris Campaign and 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol, coordinating the foreshore cleanup and data collection.

Independent scuba diving operator, Dive2U, will be running the dive component of the off-shore clean. Divers and snorkelers please register via the following link:
