The Results Are In!!

The Tangaroa Blue team are proud to share the results of the 2023 WA Beach Clean-Up in our annual event report which features case studies from each of the participating NRM Regions as well as some interesting statistics from the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) Database.

Over 1400 volunteers from 50 organisations removed an incredible 3.5 tonnes of marine debris and litter from the West Australian coastline, working collectively to protect the precious and unique marine life that calls WA home. The 2023 event saw increased clean-ups, engagement and stakeholder collaboration in the South Coast region and some incredible support from long-term participants such as Perth NRM, Coastal Waste Warriors, Prevelly Penguins and Friends of the Cape to Cape Track.

We would like to send out a big blue thank-you to our ongoing sponsors Keep Australia Beautiful WA and TallWood Custom Built Homes and a big welcome to our newest sponsors, Southern Ports Authority and GHD. This event would not be possible without your support!
