Bloomfield River School has joined the fight agains tht marine debris by organising a clean up event to be held on November 20th at their local beach of Weary Bay to the mouth of the Bloomfield River.
Students from Bloomfield River attended the Future Leaders Conference at Reef HQ in Townsville in September where they participated in a marine debris presentation. With their new found knowledge the students decided to coordinate their own marine debris clean up in their local area when they returned home.
We look forward to receiving a report and photos on what they found!
