Jono Awarded Coastcare Award

The Hawkesbury & Brisbane Waters Foreshore Program, coordinated by Graham ‘Jono’ Johnston, has been recognised at the Hunter Nepean CMA 2013 Regional Landcare Awards by wining the Coastal Communities category!

With support from Macmasters Surf Lifesaving Club, local schools, industry and councils, Jono has coordinated the program that has removed over 14 tonnes of debris from urban waterways in just 12 months.

The program is also contributing vital data on what is being removed and submitted in the Australian Marine Debris Database, helping to identify where resources are needed. Awesome work to everyone involved in this program!
