What: Orpheus Island Multi-day Clean-up
Where: Meet at Taylors Beach for transfer to the island
When: 24th-27th September 2021
To Register: mathilde@tangaroablue.org
**Please note this event is almost at capacity, but we still encourage you to register to be on the waiting list**
The ReefClean team from Tangaroa Blue will once again be heading to Goolboddi Island (Orpheus Island) for our twice-yearly clean-up.
We will clean-up several beaches over four days by removing, sorting and recording rubbish items from this island and entering it into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) Database.
Join our team of volunteers who will be working with Orpheus Island Research Station, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and Absolute North Charters for a multi-site clean-up, with funding support from the Morris Foundation.
We will meet at Taylor’s Beach in the morning on Friday 24th of September for transfer to the island and return on Monday the 27th.
Spaces are limited so please contact mathilde@tangaroablue.org to:
1. Express an interest in this event
2. Find out more information, including transfer (departure/return) times, what you will need to bring etc
We would like to acknowledge the Manbarra Aboriginal people, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we will be meeting for this event.
ReefClean is funded by the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and delivered by the Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
