What: Orpheus Island Multi-day Clean-up
Where: Meet at Taylors Beach for transfer to the island
When: 8 am, 1st-4th June 2021
To Register, email ian@tangaroablue.org
**Please note this event was originally in April, then rescheduled to May. Due to bad weather, the event has had to be deferred twice. The third time’s the charm, and we look forward to welcoming volunteers.**
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 at Taylor’s Beach in the morning on Tuesday the 1st of June for transfer to the island and return on Friday the 4th.
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.
All our events comply with Government COVID 19 restrictions current at the time of the event, so participation will depend on the travel restrictions in place at the time. Tangaroa Blue will be adhering to the latest advice from the QLD Government on COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines. (https://www.qld.gov.au/…/curre…/public-health-directions).
Unfortunately, volunteers from identified COVID-19 hotspots in the final week before the event will not be able to participate in this event. 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.
ReefClean is funded by the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and delivered by the Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
