Add to Calendar
Join Tangaroa Blue for the first of four ReefClean coastal monitoring clean-ups for 2020 at Shelly Cove on Saturday the 7th of March, meeting at 9:30am at the old Quarantine Station in the Cape Pallarenda Conservation Park car park.
We will walk a short 700m to Shelly Cove, taking in the morning air and great views of Magnetic Island and Cape Cleveland. Once arriving, we’ll lay four transects across 200m, later cleaning each area and auditing what was collected. After completion, we’ll sweep the remaining of the beach and record items for the 16-year-old Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) database.
The event will take 4 hours to complete, so feel free to bring some snacks along as well as a reusable water bottle, we will supply extra drinking water.
We ask you please wear enclosed footwear, sun smart clothing, hat and sunnies, and whatever else you may want to bring in your day pack.
Tangaroa Blue will provide gloves, bags and sunscreen.
