Where: Meet at Taylors Beach in Lucinda for transfer to the island
When: 8am, 19-22 April 2021
To Register: ian@tangaroablue.org

**Please note this event was originally in April but had to be deferred due to weather, and now some more volunteer positions have opened up**

Event Details
The ReefClean team from Tangaroa Blue will once again be heading to Goolboddi Island (Orpheus Island) for our twice-yearly clean-up.

We will rehabilitate 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 in Lucinda in the morning on Tuesday the 11th of May for transfer to the island and return on Friday the 14th.

Spaces are limited so please contact ian@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

COVID-19 restrictions and requirements
Tangaroa Blue will be adhering to the latest advice from the QLD Government on COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines. Prior to departure, participants will be asked to declare that they have not come from overseas or any other recognised COVID-19 hotspot in the past fortnight and that they have not displayed any COVID-19 like symptoms within 14 days of the trip departure date. If you feel unwell – please don’t attend and stay at home – we’ll catch you on another event later in the year 🙂

We would like to acknowledge the Manbarra Aboriginal people, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we will be meeting for this event.
