Join us for our quarterly ReefClean clean-ups in Cape Kimberley on traditional lands of the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people in the beautiful Daintree.

Along with other volunteers, you can make a practical contribution to the health of the marine and coastal environment of Far North Queensland.

Meet Tangaroa Blue Coordinators at the Cape Kimberley carpark or contact us if you would like a lift from Cairns or Port Douglas. Lunch will be provided

We will spend the morning collecting and recording marine debris for inclusion in the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) database. This is the national database that is used to identify sources of marine debris and find ways to reduce litter in the environment.

The event is part of the ReefClean program, aiming to clean-up and reduce the volume of marine debris generated in or entering the Great Barrier Reef and threatening the health of the reef and its inhabitants.

Volunteers need to wear enclosed shoes, bring sun/rain protection, and plenty of drinking water (1 to 2 litres is recommended). We try to ensure that all Tangaroa Blue events are free from single-use plastic, so bring along your reusable water bottle. All equipment and drinking water top-ups will be provided.

We will provide you with a light lunch, so let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.

To register or for any questions, please email hannah@tangaroablue.org.
