At : Cape Bedford, QLD
Tangaroa Blue, along with Conservation Volunteers Australia, are venturing up to Cape Bedford in Far North QLD for the seventh year to clear as much coastline from marine debris while recording data on what’s been removed to submit to the 16-year-old Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database, providing the ability to track items back to the source and solving this global threat to our oceans!
The Cape Bedford trip will kick off the Cape York season as the first of six clean-up trips for 2020, departing on May 15th at 8am from Cairns and returning on May 21st by 5pm. Spaces in the vehicles are limited, but if you have your own 4WD and would like to join us, let us know!
We will stop for a look around Cooktown and continue up to Elim Campground, which will be called home for the following five days. This part of the country has eye-catching views of mountain-scapes and Rainbow Beach that resembles a massive colourful sand castle!
Elim Campground itself is a cozy well-maintained area with toilets and cold showers available. Volunteers are asked to bring their camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, pillow, mattress, etc), but Tangaroa Blue will provide food and cooking equipment.
This event is suitable for volunteers with a medium fitness level.
