5 Ambassadors from 3 countries helped us implement a number of projects to address waste, reduce pollution and empower the community towards a brighter future as part of our Marine Conservation Masterplan. Read on to find out more!
7 months, 24 surveys, 19 volunteers, 429 volunteer hours and 40.2km travelled by kayak saw our team collect 22,925 items from the Tallebudgera Creek on the Gold Coast, weighing in at 1,539kg! Our report and findings were released at the Gold Coast Recreation Centre in February and we are excited to be launching Phase II to address marine debris in Tallebudgera Creek at it’s source, whilst working with a variety of stakeholders towards long-term behavioural change.
Over the past three months our team in India has been forming alliances with local organisations, government agencies and community groups, as well as undertaking beach surveys and brand audits to determine the best way to tackle the myriad of pollution and waste management issues currently facing the marine environment here.
Single-use plastic sucks! At PCFML we realised we had to do something about it to stop it from getting into our waste stream, creeks, rivers, and finally the ocean. So we designed a new campaign! We knew we had to go big and in doing so, try to encourage as many other people as possible to also call it the last straw. This meant going straight to the source, to the places that give us our straws.
