Our Inaugural River Warriors Report Card Launch

Our Inaugural River Warriors Report Card Launch

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.

Smoke Free Beaches - A Success Story in Byron Bay!

Smoke Free Beaches - A Success Story in Byron Bay!

Over the past year, Zoe White, our Byron Bay Co-ordinator, has worked with Kate Akkerman from Byron Shire Council and NSW EPA to conduct a range of trials and strategies in attempt to reduce cigarette butt litter across the Byron Shire. The result = a reduction in cigarette butt litter, a smoking ban on the Shire’s beaches and education programs that are driving long-term change!
