Clean up Australia day – Conway and Wilsons beach

Mar 21, 2017 |

Thanks to Barry Nolan (QPWS), Bren Fuller (WRC), and Cath Campbell (WCL) for their involvement in the event.  The presentations provided an insight into why cats are an issue in Australia and how the community can assist by managing their cats appropriately.

The clean up collected a huge amount of waste including over 50 thongs, over 60 various types of plastic bottles, and over 1100 hard plastic fragments.  This demonstrates that it is often common items which end up polluting our coastlines and the plastic is breaking up, not down, and accumulating in huge amounts.   Thanks to all the fantastic volunteers who came along and put in a huge effort to clean up the beach areas.
