Volunteers will assist in the sorting and recording of all debris collected. A member of the Tangaroa Blue team will assist volunteers with this process and explain how to correctly enter this important data into the AMDI database. No prior experience is necessary, our friendly team leaders will teach you everything that you need to know on the day.
We have over 100 bags from our recent Island Hop trip to Low Wooded Island and Three Islands National Park to sort and enter into the Australian Marine Debris Database, so if you’re based around Cairns and you’re keen to lend us a hand then please email your interest tohannah@tangaroablue.org.
Lunch will be provided on the day so please include if you have any dietary requirements when registering.
We ask that you wear close-toed shoes, long pants and sleeves and bring along a reusable water bottle. There will be an induction into the facility in the morning before commencing. Further meeting details will be sent via email.

Please note this is a COVID Safe Event – we do require volunteers to register. Please ensure that you check the latest QLD Government COVID requirements and if you feel unwell, please don’t attend and stay at home, we’ll catch you at a future event.
