Coral Sea Marina steps up to Clean Up!

On a hot and humid Sunday morning over 60 locals headed to Coral Sea Marina to participate in their annual Clean Up Australia Day event.

The event was hosted in partnership with Tangaroa Blue and Reef Clean and over 100kg of litter was collected from Cannonvale Beach to Airlie Beach foreshore.

The passionate team from Tangaroa Blue sorted a huge sample of the litter collected and entered the data into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative database, which then provides a valuable source of measured information from which education and source reduction programs can be developed.

From discarded clothing to food packaging and car parts, all types of litter was collected throughout the day.

Joscelyn O’Keefe, Coral Sea Marina’s Head of Marketing & Business Development was delighted with the turnout out.

“This was our biggest year yet in terms of volume collected -100kg of litter in 2-hours is a terrific effort from all those who participated. We are incredibly grateful to all who gave up their morning in the sweltering heat to give back to our beautiful region.”
