WA Beach Clean-Up 2021 Launched!

Our annual west coast event is fast approaching and it’s shaping up to be another really successful campaign for Tangaroa Blue Foundation!! For those of you who missed the official WA Beach Clean-Up report for 2020, here is a snapshot of the key successes. We hope to increase our impact this year and keep building on these numbers. Thank you to everyone who has participated in this event so far and for your interest again this year.

Register your clean-up site here!

We have recently welcomed WA Regional Project Coordinator Casey Woodward to the team, who is based in the South West. Together with Dan Burns in Perth, they are working to increase the beaches and waterways covered and are both really looking forward to connecting to the communities that care for the wild shores of Western Australia over the 15th-18th October weekend.

Alongside our partner Keep Australia Beautiful WA, we are welcoming Custom builder Tallwood Constructions to our corporate donor base. Their generous contribution provides valuable funding to the WA Beach Clean-Up for 2021 and we are proud to be growing our capacity in Western Australia, with their help. We will share more about these partners throughout the campaign.

We are also getting together some incredible prizes to be offered up to volunteers across the state to thank you for your hard work and dedication to keeping our oceans and waterways debris free!

If anyone has any questions or requires further information regarding this event, please feel free to reach out to casey@tangaroablue.org.

West Australia Beach Clean-up 2020

Calling all ocean lovers – the 2020 WA Beach Clean-up event registration is now open!

Now in its 16th 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!

Last year, over 1,000 volunteers from families, community, school and business groups registered to participate. These included one-person clean-ups to large groups of all ages at 110 sites across the State, from the remote Banjal Beach in the north Kimberley to Kanidal Beach on the South Coast.

Can you help us make 2020 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 by clicking here. If you’d like to join an existing clean-up as a volunteer, click here.
