There are renewed concerns about small quantities of plastic pellet particles, also known as nurdles, that have been found on Silver Sand Beach in Betty’s Bay this morning.
Hanglip-Kleinmond residents are being asked to find time to collect as many nurdles as possible‚ particularly from the high-water mark.
Two wheelie bins have been placed in the parking areas at Silver Sand Beach and Stony Point Penquin Colony in Betty's Bay as collection point.
Unfortunately these nurdles are hard to spot. They are very small and their colour often blends in with the sand or can be covered up by seaweed.
The pesky little critters are toxic, and never go away. Nurdles cannot be digested by animals who often mistake them for food -
