Tangaroa Blue is teaming up with the Kathmandu Summit Club for a series of clean-up events across Australia in April 2018!

Help keep plastic and debris out of our oceans and waterways. Sign up to a conservation event in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Perth.

After the clean-up, we'll categorise all rubbish collected and load the data into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative database. The Tangaroa Blue Foundation uses the data gathered to help communities create ‘source reduction plans’. This means that we can try to address the cause of marine debris at the source and try to limit the amount of rubbish created in the first place.
