Volunteers who attended today’s clean-up collected 27kg of litter, marine debris and recyclables from Soroptimist Park and Rowe’s Bay beachfront in Townsville.
The amount of rubbish removed was the size of a grown dugong, which only live just off our local coastlines! Thank you to the two families of 4 who helped Tangaroa Blue Foundation clean-up for the safety of local aquatic animals.
Acknowledgments go out to State Land Management under the Department of Natural Resources and Mines for allowing this event to take place on their land and for the employees who came out as volunteers with their family.
This project was funded by NQ Dry Tropics through the National Landcare Programme.
