Seal the Loop

There are eight (8) ‘Seal The Loop’ bins located along our foreshore.  The bins encourage responsible disposal of fishing line, hooks, bait bags etc. so that our bay is clear of the rubbish that causes harm to marine life.

If you see injured, entangled or distressed marine wildlife please call the AGL Marine Response Unit – 1300 245 678
