Honour the Ocean Beach Clean - Byron Bay

  • Apex Park 2-10 Bay St Byron Bay, NSW, 2481 Australia (map)

Approximately 6 million tonnes of rubbish enter our ocean every year, with disastrous effects on marine ecosystems. Turtles, seabirds, whales, dolphins, seals, fish and other marine life mistake photo-degraded plastics for phytoplankton, jellyfish and other sources of food, often leading to starvation and poisoning that then gets passed on to their offspring. Marine debris is something that each and every one of us can change - by changing the way we consume and the products we choose to buy we ARE the change that the ocean so desperately needs.

We have been holding fortnightly beach clean up surveys since 2012, with our next clean up in Byron Bay happening on Saturday May 25th. Why not come down and join us, meet new people and help to make a real difference by removing pollution from your local beach?

We will meet at 9 am at Apex Park across from the Beach Hotel. Afterwards we will go for a swim and head over to Byron Fresh for a coffee. Share with your friends, family and networks, and together we can help create cleaner and healthier oceans!
