World Expeditions is one of the world’s leading adventure travel companies offering ground breaking itineraries on every continent. The company has been operating small group trekking and adventure travel holidays and vacations since 1975.
They are widely recognised for ground breaking Responsible Tourism initiatives. In particular, the award winning Community Project Travel Program and as part of this program hikers are invited to help out with the 2014 WA Beach Clean Up in the stunning Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park in the world-renowned Margaret River region.
he Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park stretches over 135 kilometres in Australia’s magnificent south west coast. This rugged coastline is as diverse as it is spectacular. However this beautiful stretch of coastline is not immune to marine debris and so World Expeditions have teamed up with the Tangaroa Blue Foundation to offer this unique opportunity for you to trek the Cape to Cape Track, fully supported by expert guides, and also spend a few days clearing marine debris on a number of beaches that are considered marine debris ‘hot spots’.
You will also collect data on the debris to assist in finding long term solutions to the problem of marine debris. With long beach walks, expansive coastal heath, ancient dune systems, pockets of giant Karri forests, windswept limestone cliffs and spectacular ridgelines this short trek offers an incredibly rewarding experience combined with the comfort of farmstay style accommodation (twin share) making the most of the Margaret River wine region.
Tangaroa Blue Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the health of our marine environment, and coordinates the Australian Marine Debris Initiative, an on-ground network of volunteers, communities, organisations and agencies around the country monitoring the impacts of marine debris along their stretch of coastline.
