The south east facing beaches on Orpheus Island are a marine debris hotspot, and Tangaroa Blue volunteers with the support of the Orpheus Island Research Station have been monitoring their levels over the last few years.

This year we will be heading back over to the island for a four day clean-up event from November 18 - 22 and you are invited to come along!

Volunteers will carpool and make their own way to Lucinda for an 8am departure on the boat which will take you over to the island. Accommodation and transport will be provided for volunteers, but you will need to throw in a few dollars for food. The return trip will be early on the morning of the 22nd November back to Lucinda.

This event is suitable for volunteers with a medium to high fitness level, as there is a challenging hike to complete to get to the windward side of the island where the clean-up sites are located.

There are limited spots for this event, so please register early.
