Nurdle Hunt

Nurdle Hunt

Dyer Island Conservation Trust

Nurdles are tiny pieces of plastic that have made their way onto our beaches, after a large cargo spillage near Durban. 

Help do your part this December holiday by collecting these pesky bits and bringing them through to the Dyer Island Conservation Trust at: 5 Geelbek St, Van Dyks Bay.

Happy Nurdle hunting all.

These nurdles are harmful to marine and human life as they absorb poisonous pesticides and enter the food chain by being consumed by marine animals.
