Regular Events

Community Marine Debris Groups

Every Thursday 5pm –Burleigh Beach – Responsible Runners

Second Sunday of every month – Bungaree Clean up – Wildlife Emergency

The Community Marine Debris program provides funding for local groups to undertake on-ground waterway litter cleanup and address marine debris problems including identifying hot spots in South-East Queensland (QLD).

Waterway litter and debris, particularly plastic, pose a serious threat to our turtles and other marine wildlife. Understanding the range of items and their potential source are a vital step in creating a positive future for marine life.
