Twelve-year-old Aus­tralian Shalise Leesfield is help­ing pro­tect the ocean by col­lect­ing dis­carded fish­ing line from the beaches near her home in Lake Cathie, NSW. She has man­aged to get a fish­ing line col­lec­tion bin in­stalled there and uses the dis­carded fish­ing line to make bracelets, with pro­ceeds do­nated to marine con­ser­va­tion. Leesfield has also been granted En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Act fund­ing so she can con­tinue to in­stall fish­ing line col­lec­tion bins in the re­gion.
