Juud Addison, Byron Bay
I am a Byron Ranger and a member of a local volunteer group that, amongst other things, organises clean ups on our beautiful beaches every week.
During today’s clean up at Belongil we collected 30 full doggie bags that were left behind.
How lucky are we to be able to exercise and enjoy selected beaches together with our furry family members? However, if you do go to the beach, please pick up your own doggie-poo bags and don’t leave it behind for someone else to pick up, or worse, to be washed into the sea.
For those amongst us that leave the bags on the beach, with the intention to collect it on the way back, ask yourself how often you’ve forgotten accidentally?
Count your blessings, smile bright and keep enjoying all the goodness on your walks.
And say thank you, a lot.
