Clearing plastic, Wellington

Scots College are kaitiaki of their local awa. They’ve built a bio fence using plastic bottles tied with a net. This floats on top of the water and catches the plastic going downstream, but still enables fish to swim underneath it. They want to stop pollution in the river, and stop plastics getting out to the ocean.
