Alva Beach Clean-up 2017

On January 19th nine beachcombers took to the shorelines of Alva Beach, south of Townsville in QLD, where discoveries of local litter scattered across 4km led to their collection of 340kg!

This included fishing line-entwined bird’s nests, international plastic drink bottles along with a tractor tyre and some peculiar metal objects that resembled a train track and a satellite dish!

Thanks to all the volunteers, plus the Burdekin Shire Council and Gudjuda Reference Group for their support on-site, and to NQ Dry Tropics and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme for funding this project through the Community Landcare Grant.
