The 2023 Great Nurdle Hunt brought together over 30 participants at Plane Spotters Beach in Botany, Sydney, and 90 participants at Westgate Park along the Yarra River in Melbourne.
Pennefather is renowned for its natural beauty, yet it faces a pressing environmental issue – the accumulation of plastic bottles, thongs, commercial fishing equipment, and oil containers. We are incredibly grateful to the Napranum Traditional Owners’ elders, Nanum Wungthim Land and Sea Rangers , and the wonderful families who invited Tangaroa Blue to support the first-ever Pennefather Marine Debris Research and Plastic Recovery Initiative.
On September 21st to 29th, 2023, a team of seven volunteers and one coordinator set off from Cairns to clean not just 5 Beaches, but as it happened, nearly 7! After two days of hard driving, they camped at Archer River and crossed Jardine River where they were met by the rest of the team who travelled from the Torres Strait Islands.
Our annual WA Beach Clean-up is back for another year!
Our WA Project Coordinators are working to increase the beaches and waterways covered and are both really looking forward to connecting to the communities that care for the wild shores of Western Australia over the 13th-15th of October.
