This event is dependent on the coronavirus situation at the time. We will provide further updates closer to the date.

Join Tangaroa Blue for ReefClean coastal monitoring  at Shelly Cove. Meeting at 11:00 am 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.

If you’re interested and would like to register or would like to find out more information, please email johanna@tangaroablue.org.
