BEACH CLEAN UP @ RAINBOW BEACH
Gympie Landcare, in partnership with Burnett Mary Regional Group (BMRG) and Clean Up Australia have planned a marine & litter debris clean up for the Gympie Region, on 5th March 2023 at Rainbow Beach (Lawrie Hanson Park).
With the devasting floods from 2022, we are still finding residual litter in our waterways and on our beaches. We are asking for your assistance for one day, at Rainbow Beach and up to Inskip Point to remove rubbish from the coastline.
We have been working with Tangaroa Blue and BMRG over the past six months and have already undertaken extremely successful major clean ups of our coastlines and waterways, but there are still small plastics and rubbish that are of a real threat to our marine & river life.
If you have a few hours to spare, and you would like to contribute to protecting our marine life and threatened species, please consider joining us 5th March between 9am and 3pm.
Can’t help on the beach? We are looking for assistance at the registration area, assisting with registrations, counting and allocating rubbish to allow upload to the website.
Our staff are looking for other areas within the region to clean up and stop rubbish making its way to our riverways.
Do you know somewhere that we can make an impact?
Contact Gympie Landcare now to help as part of our marine and litter debris project. We are looking for opportunities to remove litter from all our local waterway areas!
