Harbourcare Kayak x World Turtle Day
22 June 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Note: Event postponed to Wednesday 22 June 9am – 12:30pm due to wet weather.
In May we celebrate World Turtle Day, and what better way to mark this special event than a kayak cleanup to protect these beautiful creatures?
Did you know that Sydney Harbour is home to 3 species of sea turtles: the Green, Loggerhead and Leatherback turtle? Sadly, sea turtles and other marine creatures ingest plastic pollution, eventually leading to death.
Join the fight in preserving these magnificent creatures by joining Lane Cove Council’s Harbourcare team for a kayak around Woodford Bay, collecting marine litter along the bay foreshore as we explore and protect this beautiful marine ecosystem.
Due to COVID-19, tickets are only available to fully-vaccinated* individuals. There is a preference to book in pairs from the same household, as you will be sharing double kayaks.
Double kayaks supplied (sport/touring design), medium level fitness required, a little kayaking experience preferred but not necessary.
