Williamstown Wetlands Litter Hotspot

Wader Beach for Birds not Litter.

In October 2014 FOWW was awarded a grant by the Metropolitan Waste Resource and Recovery Group to conduct a litter survey at Wader Beach as part of the Victorian Government's Litter Hotspots Project.  

FOWW partnered with Hobsons Bay City Council.  They provided some additional funding and in-kind help.

FOWW volunteers worked with volunteers from Friends of Greenwich Bay, Jawbone Marine Sanctuary Care Group, Scab Duty and 3016 Beach Patrol to improve the situation along our coast. 

The results of our survey have been analysed by Port Phillip Eco-Centre and we have developed an Action Plan for 2015-2017 to reduce litter build up in the future.
