This year’s WA Beach Clean was another great success- with over 105 clean-ups conducted and engaging 1517 volunteers in local action.
More than 73,302 items (20,000 items more than last year!) were logged into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database. And more than a total of 3.1 Tonnes of marine debris removed from 209 kilometres of coastline, estuaries and waterways.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in this years WA Beach Clean-up (WABCU). While beach clean-ups alone can’t solve the ocean trash problem, they are an integral piece to the overall solution.
We are so grateful to long term partners Keep Australia Beautiful WA as well as Tallwood Custom Built Homes and Baywest Blinds and Shutters for their support this year.
And finally, a thank you to all of the companies that generously supported through product donations
Now in its 17th year, the WABCU is a really special event to us and we hope to have you join us again in 2022.
For anyone who wants to see the full stats a more detailed report on findings will be released by Tangaroa Blue early in the New Year.
