PEEL SeniorNet members donated $1880 to Peel Preservation Group (PPG) to help with conservation work.
With the donation, along with other funding, PPG is looking at the viability of installing several sea-bins in the Peel-Harvey Estuary.
These sea-bins are able to capture and temporarily store floating debris such as plastic waste, and would be ideal to install in Mandurah’s canal areas and adjacent waterways.
PPG spokesman Mel Tuckey said one of the main concerns of the group was the plastic waste that ends up in our local waterways and wetlands.
“We are keen to continue our public awareness campaign in this regard, such as our free public screening last year of the documentary movie A Plastic Ocean,” he said.
Peel SeniorNet provided computer skills training for seniors.
The funding was provided before the group disbanded.
