After the enormous success of our River Warriors Gold Coast and Redlands projects, we are starting up a new River Warriors project on the Brunswick River, proudly sponsored by our friends at Patagonia and Southern Cross Credit Union.
Our first kayak-based clean-up of the river took place in 2017, where just 32 volunteers collected an astounding 1.5 tonnes of trash!
Given our findings, we will now be running monthly kayak-based surveys on the Brunswick River, producing a State of Marine Debris Report and Marine Debris Report Card, which will highlight hotspots and sources of debris in an effort to combat them. Phase II of the project will then aim to tackle the issue at its source, utilising a variety of community outreach and physical mitigation methods.
Join us for the launch of this exciting new project! We will meet at 11am next to Massy Greene Caravan Park at the end of Tweed Street in Brunswick Heads. You can park near Memorial Park or in town.
There are 14 double kayaks available for a donation of just $20 per kayak, or BYO non-motorised watercraft.
You can register to come with your own watercraft or sign up for a kayak through Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/river-warriors-brunswick-river-launch-tickets-69380241169
