Join Conservation Volunteers Australia as we head to Far Beach to conduct a marine debris survey in an effort to clean up our local beach and raise community awareness of the types of rubbish leaving our hands and entering the marine environment.
Marine debris kills marine life, damages or alters habitats, and can pose a threat to people and a hazard to navigational safety. It can also have substantial economic impacts on local communities.
Volunteers will participate in a beach clean up before sorting and recording the quantities in an attempt to determine the sources of rubbish most prominant along our coastline.
Conservation Volunteers accommodation is not available on this project, but all levels of tourist accommodation are available in Mackay, from backpacker hostels to high-quality hotels. A team leader collects local and visiting volunteers daily from pick-up points in the city.
Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent
