Hello Volunteer Wardens,
"S.O.S " - SAVE OUR SHORECRABS
Sorry this message is late call, but earlier today we were made aware of an urgent call to help save some of our shore life from a neglected fixed net near Epple Bay, Birchington. This email is a call - as we could do with about 3 or 4 volunteers to help with this urgent rescue task! The task is to cut out live crabs and dead fish from the neglected net. Please just turn up at the top of the slope to Epple Bay if you are able to help!
MEET:Top of Slope Epple Bay (park on Epple Bay Road)
TIME:We're moving onto the reef at 9:30am Friday 22 April 2011 (as low tide is around 10:44am; so the task should only last just over one hour!)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:- Bring secateurs ...or sharp scissors!
WEAR- Wellington Boots, as a bit sticky with silt on the shore here.
LOCATION- Fixed net is at lower shore on reef towards West Bay (from Epple)
