You hear so much negative news about the oceans these days. I don’t know how many times I have seen videos on Facebook with Whales and Turtles struggling with nets caught around them. It is heartbreaking. However, there is hope and The Great Ocean clean up is just that. Great people, real people that are to be supported and admired, as they care enough to put themselves out there and physically do something about the trash collecting in our oceans. Never before in my view has there been any more worthy cause to support. These guys are life’s true heroes.

It’s been called the largest clean up in history. Check their website out.

This is a magic Island just out of Auckland. You need a boat to get there even though it is just out from local beaches, say 10 min by boat, off the North Islands mainland east coast. Take a look

An Island for fishing, swimming, walking, diving, kayaking and relaxing in the sand. That is when you can put the camera down.
