Join the 12th Annual WA Beach Clean-up!
This year's West Australian Beach Clean Up will be held on the 15th and 16th of October right across the whole state. As in years past Tangaroa Blue encourages members of the public, community groups, schools, corporate groups and others to take part by organising a clean-up at their favourite section of our beautiful coastline. Clean-ups can also extend to our estuaries and inland rivers, streams and other waterways as all water will eventually flow to the sea taking with it whatever rubbish it contains.
Volunteers are invited to register as an individual or as a group and nominate a beach or stretch of coastline they will clean up over the clean-up weekend. All materials, volunteer insurance and logistical support will be provided, all we need is lots of energy and many hands to help remove marine debris from the coast.
This will be the 12th year the event has been held, growing from a local clean-up based in the Capes region of WA in its inaugural year to a statewide event which last year saw 1,238 volunteers involved and 5,528kg of rubbish removed from 268km of our coastline.
To register your interest please contact [email protected] or call on 0437 511 620.
The clean-up is made possible by the State Government’s Natural Resource Management Program and Royalties for Regions program.
Tangaroa Blue Foundation would like to to thank Keep Australia Beautiful WA, South West Catchments Council, WA Department of Fisheries, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Coastwest and local government authorities around the state, as well as all the amazing volunteers for their ongoing support on this annual event.
