Fishing Line Bin Project

Fishing Line Bin Project

Dyer Island Conservation Trust

Marine pollution especially fishing line and plastics make their way into the sea and can entangle around the bodies or insides (if eaten) of animals, potentially leading to death.

By means of the Fishing Line Bin Project the Dyer Island Conservation Trustincreases public awareness of the negative impacts of fishing line debris and encourages correct disposal by a network of unique fishing line bins strategically placed along the coastline.

A network of fishing line bins have been deployed along the South African coastline. These bins are placed at the most prominent and popular fishing spots, and provides visual education and urges anglers to discard and recycle their fishing line instead of disposing of it on the rocks or on the beaches.

The Trust and International Marine Volunteers helps ensure these bins are emptied.
