Red Beach Flood Cleanup
Come and help clean up Red Beach by collecting marine debris left after the floods. This will be a fortnightly event until we've covered about 6km of the beach, probably ending in November. Exact timing will be advised closer to each date as it depends on tides and weather.
When and where
22 Aug 2022, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Rhys's Place, 36 Spowers St, Bongaree QLD 4507, Australia
About the event
We'll clear marine debris from one section of a 6km stretch of beach on the southern end of the island. We need as many hands as possible to cover as much of that stretch as we can each time.
The debris collected will be sorted and catalogued for Tangaroa Blue, a research project also known as the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI). Their goal is to tackle the problem at its source by building a database of marine debris that tells them where most of it is coming from.
Please note that the dates and times for this event may change, depending on tides and weather. We will update thoe details closer to each fortnightly event.
This project has been assisted by a Queensland Government Community Sustainability Grant.
