Found today on the bank of the Cooks River - many metres of fishing line tied at each end to what smells like 2 poo bags. This kind of litter has the potential to cause extreme & long-term suffering to wildlife, especially birds.

I give this poor Ibis as an example of the damage discarded fishing line can do. He has line wrapped tightly around his ankle & a number of toes. His health is deteriorating & he is obviously suffering much pain. This was totally preventable.
