HarbourCare x World Oceans Day
15 June 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
It is estimated that around 8 million tons of plastic enters the world’s oceans every day – 80% of which is from land-based sources. Over 817 animal species are affected by ocean pollution around the world and many types of rubbish are easily mistaken as food by marine creatures. On World Oceans Day we can make a difference and prevent our local waterways from carrying these pollutants into the ocean, resulting in a cleaner, healthier environment.
This event will see us clean up creeks, parks, mangroves and bushland, all while enjoying a beautiful bushwalk. Clean-ups are a great way to bring the community together, raise awareness, and start the conversation about reducing litter at the source.
All ages welcome, low – moderate fitness required.
Bags, gloves and litter pickers provided.
BYO water and snack.
Please wear enclosed footwear and sun-smart clothing.
To ensure this is a COVID-safe activity, numbers are strictly limited. We will also be physically distancing on site and hand sanitiser will be provided. All equipment is disinfected before and after use.
Please do not attend on the day if you are feeling unwell or have any cold/flu symptoms.
The event will commence at Tambourine Bay Park and progress around the foreshore and bushland surroundings before returning to our starting location.
