Kananook Creek Summary

Three litter trackers at Kananook Creek travelled into the Bay and landed at Frankston Foreshore. It took a maximum of a day for the three trackers to travel into the Bay from the mouth of Kananook Creek and return to the foreshore. Two of the bottles travelled upstream and downstream which is expected for a tidal creek. The other two bottles travelled a short distance and were trapped in riparian vegetation. Interestingly, the journeys of the litter trackers in Kananook Creek suggest that litter may end up trapped in the creek or may have the potential to travel into the Bay and land on our shores and beaches.
