Healthy Water Regional Report Cards outline the condition of freshwater, estuarine, inshore and offshore marine ecosystems in their region, and report regionally on social, cultural and economic health and stewardship. For the first time ever, data from the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) Database and the ReefClean program has been included in the annual Regional Report Cards and we’re super excited to see the results!
Every year from May to September the Tangaroa Blue crew makes several trips to Cape York to hold multi-day clean-ups at various locations.
Cape York is known as one of Australia’s last true wilderness areas. Our volunteers can attest that visiting these remote areas with us has been life-enhancing, with many wanting to join us year after year.
Tangaroa Blue and AMDI partners are so very close to removing and identifying a staggering 17 million items of litter from oceans and waterways around Australia through community clean-ups over the last 16 years, and we couldn’t have done it without you all!
