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.
On the 26th Jan a mystery net (estimated weight around 600kg) was picked up by Sea Swift’s MV Malu Trojan at Switzer Reef near Barrow Island Point (just south of Princess Charlotte Bay). It was found on the edge of the main shipping lane and was lucky to be spotted by the skipper before getting caught in any propellers or trapping any marine life. A mini investigation ensued to find out the story behind it’s travel across the seas!
On Wednesday the 18 millionth item was entered into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database by members of the Eurobodalla Marine Debris Working Group, Landcare and South Head residents!
