Join us for the 5th Annual Darwin Harbour Clean Up. Assist us to clean and survey our beautiful Darwin beaches. You will help collect urban debris (rubbish washed into the catchment), such as glass, plastics, cans, fishing line, and fishing nets, which threaten our native marine wildlife like turtles and dugongs, fish and shore birds. After the collection join us and the other volunteers for a light lunch at Fisherman's Wharf followed by sorting, identifiying and recording what we found the data you collect can help lead to raised awareness of the impacts this human waste in our Harbour.
Your efforts will contribute to a large-scale effort that will be occurring around Darwin Harbour through out the day both on shore and on the water. This Darwin Harbour Clean Up is a water quality improvement activity consistent with the Darwin Harbour Water Quality Protection Plan.
The Clean Up aims to:
· Decrease the amount of marine debris around Darwin Harbour
· Complete a marine debris audit showing areas, amount, composition and possible source
· Improve public awareness regarding the sources and impacts of marine debris
· Improve links between marine and coastal stakeholder groups
· Develop an action plan for further monitoring and management, including information materials/campaigns.
