Harbourcare Land Clean-up x World Oceans Day

Wednesday 15 June, 9:30am - 11:30am, Tambourine Bay Park

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 land based 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.
