Join us for survey 2 of our #RiverWarriors Brunswick River initiative, proudly sponsored by our friends at Patagonia, Byron Bay Brewery and Southern Cross Credit Union.
Last September during our first survey we collected 2038 pieces of debris from just a 2km stretch of the River! All of our survey data will go towards a Marine Debris Report Card and State of Marine Debris Report, 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. All of our data is also uploaded into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative database to map debris across the country.
We will meet at 11am at Ferry Point Reserve, next to Ferry Reserve Holiday Park on Riverside Crescent. There will be ample parking available..There are also 14 double kayaks available for a donation of just $20 per kayak, or BYO non-motorised watercraft.
