2017 AbbottJoin Tangaroa Blue Foundation for their first local wetlands clean-up at Abbott Street near Oonoonba Park on Sunday the 5th of March to Wednesday the 8th, 2017. This land encounters high tides that bring in marine debris and carry out litter with receding tides.

To prevent more rubbish washing away into the Great Barrier Reef, we will be meeting at Oonoonba Park on Shannon Street at 8:30am each morning for a full day clean-up event with food and drinks provided. 

Please bring/wear enclosed footwear, sun smart clothing, a hat, sunnies and a reusable water bottle/camelback along with your energy and a smile! Volunteers are free to join us on just one day or all four days whatever you can spare to help out is appreciated!

Completing this project will imprint Abbott Street’s first dataset entry into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database, thanks to funding from State Land Management under the Department of Natural Resources and Mines.To register or for more information email This email address is being protected from spambots.
