Summary

There is an approximately 15km zone south of the Double Island Point Conservation Park lighthouse. This area has ongoing litter and rubbish issues, accruing debris from both land and sea sources.

Several 4WD's are organised by Surfrider Foundation for clean-up at a peak holiday time where rubbish and debris levels are high. The clean-up is part of the Picitup rubbish campaign. The initiative includes printing 1000 'take away' rubbish bags for volunteers on the day and for on-going clean-ups.

Benefits

  • Improved habitat
  • Community engagement.
