That’s the weight of 4 BLUE WHALES and the most successful WA Beach Clean-Up of recent years!
Tangaroa Blue Foundation was recently recognised as one of three organisations to have provided 10 consecutive years of support to Dunsborough Primary School’s annual Bay Ok Day. This wonderful event that is enjoyed by up to 700 students on the beautiful shores of Old Dunsborough in WA’s South West is a favourite on the school activity calendar.
Our annual west coast event is fast approaching and it’s shaping up to be another really successful campaign for Tangaroa Blue Foundation!! For those of you who missed the official WA Beach Clean-Up report for 2020, here is a snapshot of the key successes. We hope to increase our impact this year and keep building on these numbers. Thank you to everyone who has participated in this event so far and for your interest again this year.
This year’s WA Beach Clean-up saw over 80 groups adopt a coastal or estuarine site across the State, engaging 783 volunteers in local action. The clean-ups ranged from small one-person clean-ups to big ones like the 70 awesome people who took part in the South Beach clean-up, pictured above.
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!
