Shelly Cove is located within the Cape Pallarenda Conservation Park that is managed by National Parks and Conservation Volunteers Australia. Each year Tangaroa Blue and partners run a community clean-up event to protect the marine wildlife that reside within Cape Cleveland. Since Shelly Cove sits in a sheltered position, it’s a friendlier environment for a greater range of sandy shore marine animals but it’s also a hotspot for marine debris and local litter.

If you’re interested in helping Tangaroa Blue, Conservation Volunteers and National Parks remove rubbish from the environment, and you want to become a part of the Australian Marine Debris Initiative, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
