NYLC Lead JGIA’s Team 2 Plastics Campaign

21 April 2018

It has been predicted that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. From Earth Day and continuing throughout Term 2, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Australia (R&S) and National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) members will focus on ocean plastics and how our choices impact on our precious wildlife.

With news and ideas from around the globe, and those taking place on very our shores, our R&S and NYLC teams will show us how we can make a difference on the issue of ocean plastic.

Also, projects from R&S groups around Australia will be shared and make sure you keep an eye out for posts on the Hawksbill Turtle. The incredible and unique Hawksbill Turtle has a migration path from the UAE to the North Queensland coast of Australia and holds a special place in the hearts of our R&S groups both here and around the world.

For more information on the inspiring team behind our NYLC plastics campaign and perhaps join the NYLC yourself, please visit our NYLC webpage and of course find out more about our entire Roots & Shoots movement at rootsandshoots.org.au and follow us on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter R&S pages or sign up for R&S today.
