Cleanup Log – Halfway Mark

Cleanup Log – Halfway Mark

It's hard to believe, but we've officially reached our halfway mark for our Clean Coast Clean Waters cleanup project! As we wind down for a well deserved Christmas break, we wanted to share with you what we've accomplished so far!

Our work over the past few months has been nothing short of extraordinary. We have managed to cover over 209km of coastline, and our tireless efforts have resulted in the collection of more than 18 000 kg of marine debris (plus an additional 5000kg collected shortly after calculating our totals) . Our team is amazed by the extensive array of items found. From everyday items like styrofoam and rope to objects that appear to have been discarded decades ago, we have seen it all.

Our team’s resilience in challenging weather conditions has been immensely inspiring. Despite the difficulties faced while navigating unforgiving weather, the team remained determined and focused. We are incredibly proud of their unwavering enthusiasm and dedication, which allowed us to achieve our goals. Our mission to clean the coastline is not over yet, and we can’t wait to continue our work in the new year!

That is almost 26 Tonnes of Marine Debris! It's equivalent to the weight of approximately 13 x cars!
