On 29 July, three keen Marine Biology students who were concerned about the litter in Melbourne’s rivers assisted RMIT University and Hobsons Bay Council in the release of five plastic bottles fitted with GPS trackers to demonstrate how and where litter travels once in the waterways. The team hope everyone can join them and drive change to build a cleaner, healthier future for Melbourne’s waterways and bays. Williamstown High School is one of 20 community groups to assist in the release of 100 litter trackers. Litter trackers can be followed here at www.rmit.edu.au/littertrackers.
