Shalise's Ocean Support

The Mid North Coast's 'Bindi Irwin'

Shalise Leesfield from Lake Cathie is only 11 years old, but has already begun a local conservation effort. 

Shalise's Ocean Support has helped install fishing line disposal bins around the Lake Cathie area. 

When speaking to Bodge and Rach, Shalise stated her reason for doing it "I've always loved the ocean it's one of my biggest passions."

Shalise researched ocean facts and found out the damaging impact that fishing line can have on our ocean's and the marine life within them.

As well as the installation of the bins, Shalise will also be running her own Clean Up Australia Day group in the Lake Cathie area this Sunday from 9am!
