Brisbane: Beach Clean: Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign28 May 2017 - 06:30 - 28 May 2017 - 08:30Nudgee Beach, Queensland
Two out of every three breaths we take come from our oceans, they are vital for our survival.
40% of the phytoplankton that we need to help produce this air that we breathe, are missing.
Come and join our Brisbane team for our next clean up and be part of this solution. By removing debris from the coast we can help reduce the challenges facing the oceans.
Please wear enclosed shoes, be sun smart and wear a hat and sunscreen and bring a bucket/ bag/ tongs to collect the rubbish in.
Please bring resuable gloves!
Dont forget water in a reusable bottle -
No single use plastic at this event please!
May 28th 8.30am
Love the beach? Then come and help us keep it beautiful and clean and protect the wildlife that live in the waters off of our coastline!
1 million seabirds are effected by marine debris every year, with many species of birds being found with plastic in their stomachs.
We can all help by refusing to use single use plastics as well as joining a beach clean to remove it before it has a chance to be eaten by marine life!
Bring gloves/ tongs/ buckets to pick up the trash, be sun smart and wear enclosed shoes.
Sydney Beach Clean: SeaShepherd Marine Debris Campaign Aus28 May 2017 - 13:00 - 28 May 2017 - 14:00Northern Beaches, Sydney, Australia
Looking for a way to give back to your community? Then why not come along and join Sydney’s Marine Debris team at their next clean up on the Northern Beaches.
Seven out of ten breaths you take use oxygen created by the ocean yet we as a society dump on average 8 million tonnes of rubbish into our seas annually. It’s vital that we all do our part to stop this, by giving a few hours of your time you will stop tens if not hundreds of kilos of debris from reaching the ocean.
This is a family friendly event!
Sunday 28th May 2017
3pm – 5pm
Meeting Point – to be confirmed.
Please wear close-in shoes, a hat, sunscreen and bring some water in a reusable container. Also, if you have reusable gloves and/or tongs please bring them along.
Rebecca and Tammy are coordinators from our Queensland Marine Debris team, they are passionate ocean lovers who spend a lot of their free time volunteering for Sea Shepherd, they organise clean ups along the beaches of the Sunshine Coast targeting all rubbish but predominately plastic which is the biggest pollutant facing our seas.
They have decided to to bring awareness to the plight of our oceans which are drowning in plastic by doing a beach clean up EVERY DAY for the month of June.
They are hoping that by doing it the month prior to Plastic Free July it will encourage
others to reduce their wastage and take the challenge to give up single use plastic items for the month of July.
Saddened by the amount of trash picked up at the beaches all year round, their aim is to raise awareness of the impacts of plastic pollution on our oceans. In particular single use plastic which is one of the biggest contributors, yet easily avoidable with a few small changes.
We will update you daily on the beaches Rebecca and Tammy will be cleaning during the month.
All proceeds will go directly to Sea Shepherd Australia to help our campaign to continue the fight against marine debris.
