What we're watching: Baykeepers documentary

Protect waterways and wildlife from plastics with Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake (OAM), your independent voice for our beautiful Port Phillip Bay. This award-winning 26-minute doco by Lutman Films highlights the alarming 'plastic soup' that sparked us to design citizen sicence like Clean Bay Blueprint; to help schools and kinders go zero-waste; and to partner with Scouts Victoria to track plastic pollution and stop it where it starts.
