Round 3 of the mighty AFL, the Meee’s playing the Essendon Legends, a whopper of a game. it was held at the Essendon Legends home ground on the 19th of August. It was a smasher of a game with warm and sunny conditions. Unfortunetly, the Meee’s had lost to the Essendon Legends by a massive 63 points! Nick Dal Santo played an all right game with Barry Hall played poorly without a goal and without a behind. In the end, everyone played well and lets hope the Meee’s play a little well next week.

They thrashed the Meee!’s by a whopping 99 points but everyone played a great game. Dean Cox played well with 21 hit outs but unfortunately Nick Riewoldt scored poorly without a goal and only one hit out.
Seabirds and gulls are really paying the price!!! Off the coast of the Tasman Sea, birds are mistaking plastic for food. This is now effecting the reproduction of the seabirds and the way they live.
These pieces of plastic, when swallowed by birds, can tear internal organs and release toxics that cling to the plastic. One of these toxics are Mercury which can kill these birds. Dr. Lavers, the Tasmanian Museum, has observed in his latest survey that 95% of the birds nesting have plastic inside their stomachs. Scientists have found out that a big portion of the problem comes from the Northern Pacific Garbage Patch (a circular current storing garbage). Most of the marine life bring the plastic back to their nests where then the adult and chick slowly start to die.
This is horrible!!!! We need to stop pollution!!!!!
