Shark Bite #3
Welcome to Shark Bite #3.
Take 3 for the Sea
In April, Take 3 for the Sea (supported by the LS King Palm Volley) launched their online Surf Life Saving Clubs (SLSC) program for the 2022 surf life-saving season. They partnered with surf clubs across Australia to educate thousands about the impact of plastic pollution and what they can do to prevent litter.
With this program quickly spreading across surf clubs, Take 3 will be largely responsible for raising the next generation of Aussie ocean advocates to fight against plastic pollution in our oceans.
This is a huge step for ocean conservation.

The Ocean Cleanup
The Ocean Cleanup (supported by the Rogue Crewneck) is off to a hot start in 2022 after a record-breaking year in 2021. They launched System 002, the most effective ocean plastic removal system to date.
In just 5 months, System 002, aka Jenny, removed almost 90,000 pounds of plastic from the oceans.
This is awesome work, but there's still a long way to go. That’s only about 1/2500th the size of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
We’re looking to support The Ocean Cleanup again in the future to help them achieve their goals. Stay tuned for announcements on this.
See you next time.
