Cape Arnhem - Nhulunbuy (Gove)

Naturewise Eco Escapes contribute to priority on-ground conservation efforts. Working with the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation and Conservation Volunteers this voluntour supports the annual Wanuwuy marine debris clean up program.  Alongside Dhimurru Aboriginal rangers we walk along Wanuwuy beach (Cape Arnhem region) to collect, catalogue and dispose of marine debris. During the first half of the trip  you will be walking the beaches daily to collect marine debris before spending the last few days cataloguing and recording data on the collected debris. The data is sent to Tangaroa Blue to determine the source of pollution and guide strategies to aid pollution reduction. This tour is run in partnership with the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation and Conservation Volunteers Australia.
