Clean up for the Hatchlings | Sunshine Coast | 30 January

30 January @ 6:00 am - 11:00 am

Clean up for the Hatchlings

Clean-up for the Hatchlings is a free event run by Sunshine Coast Council in partnership with ReefCheck Australia, Unitywater, and Sealife Sunshine Coast, inspiring the whole community to come together to help clean up Sunshine Coast Beaches in preparation for the hatchling turtles.

The beach clean-up will take place at various locations from Coolum to Caloundra between 6am – 7:30am.

Last year, 635 volunteers of all ages removed a massive 560kg of litter from our beaches – can you help beat that number for 2021?

Following the beach clean-up, volunteers meet at La Balsa Park to weigh and sort debris, listen to guest speakers, enjoy a free BBQ and participate in a prize draw.

✔️ TO DO – Set your alarm to arrive to your location at 6am
 
🧤 BRING – gloves, reusable water bottle and plenty of water
 
🤠 WEAR – closed shoes and sun safe clothing and bring a chair
 
🚲 TRANSPORT – Consider car pooling or ride your bike if you can.
 
Thank you for your turtley awesome support and, it’s not to late to join – there are still spots at:
 
• La Balsa Park
• Warana South
• Wurtulla
• Happy Valley
• Dicky Beach

Register your interest to help here.
