Registration now open for the 2019 WA Beach Clean-up

Calling all ocean lovers – the 2019 WA Beach Clean-up event registration is now open!

Now in its 15th year, this special event in the Tangaroa Blue Foundation calendar is open for registration and seeking your assistance.

If you are a keen citizen scientist, a school or community group, part of a family or workplace team or just love the ocean and want to help out, we need you for the WA Beach Clean-up!

In 2018, more than one thousand people from across the Western Australian community spent over 2,500 volunteer hours at 120 clean-up events and scoured more than 161 km of coastline. A total of 58,097 items, weighing in at 5,114 kg were removed and audited by volunteers, giving a boost to our marine ecosystems!

Can you help us make 2019 our biggest event ever?

It costs nothing to participate and all materials, volunteer insurance, and logistical support is provided.

Register now and get involved – just follow these four easy steps:

Step 1: Choose a favourite beach, river or waterway that needs a clean-up and register your site here: https://www.tangaroablue.org/wa-beach-clean-up-site-registration/.

Step 2: Enlist your friends, family or workmates to help for a few hours at your clean-up site sometime over the October 19-20 weekend.

Step 3: Await your clean-up and data recording kit delivery (late September – early October) and follow the advice to get your team ready for action!

Step 4: On the day, collect and audit marine debris, record data for upload later or use the AMDI data app to record directly into the Tangaroa Blue Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database.
