During the LIPS / Tangaroa Blue clean up on Low Isles and Woody Island on May 17th, hundreds of metres of rope was found and was unable to be removed due to the size on the day. Today, June 5th, volunteers were able to return to Woody Island to collect the rope and remove it from the island. Photo: Rick, Alex, Mick and Gabby on Woody Island removing the rope.
Many thanks to Alex and Rick – caretakers of Low Isles, Mick and Gabrielle for joining Tangaroa Blue co-founder Heidi in the rope mission! Absolutely glorious weather enabled us to bring the boat close to the location where volunteers had tied up the rope to ensure it wouldn’t end up back in the ocean on the high tides.
