Blair Jedras is the Reef Check Australia volunteer behind the organisation Clean Oceans Australia. He grew up on North Stradbroke Island, and hates to see his favorite childhood hang out covered in rubbish.
'Every single person can make a difference in this world. I know my mission - to stop waste entering our oceans. We have to protect our oceans, and the animals that live there, otherwise there wont be anything left for future generations to enjoy' says Blair. Blair gave a passionate talk on debris and tackling the little issue. Participants were also treated to a screening of the documentary "Bag It". For more information about Clean Oceans Australia and to see some photographs and videos of their clean ups, including underwater clean up dives, you can visit their facebook page.

Brisbane has some hidden natural areas that could be wonderful places to visit in the future. One is the Parklands at Myrtletown at the mouth of the Brisbane River. It has some of the most important saltmarsh ecosystems and beach vegetation in Brisbane, but the site is unprotected without fencing for 4wd impacts. Recently the assault on this fragile coastal parkland has intensified with destruction becoming widespread. It is time now for the State Government (owners) and the Brisbane City Council (land managers) to protect this parkland. Brisbane’s environment is at the mercy of “users and abusers” it appears.
