Join our Marine Debris Clean-ups

Plastic in our ocean increases by 8 million tonnes each year! This durable debris has the potential to entangle, or be ingested by fish, mammals and birds and leach toxic compounds into the ecosystem. Lets do something about it!

Over the last three years, our marine debris clean-ups have removed more than 45 cubic metres of rubbish from the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Huon Estuary and surrounds. The Collaboration is hoping for an even bigger turnout in 2019.

The clean-ups will run over five hours and volunteers are invited to join a FREE BBQ lunch of meat, salmon and salads. Registration is essential. To find out more information please contact Amelia Fowles: [email protected]

Let’s create positive change and work together to protect our valuable waterways

The D’Entrecasteaux and Huon Collaboration marine debris clean-ups bring together community groups, local tourism operators, aquaculture companies, Councils and State Government to look after the health of our waterways. See you there!
