60-80% of marine debris originates directly from land sources, including debris from run-off, stormwater drains, air-born debris and irresponsible disposal of rubbish.

Volunteer in Whitsundays

To become an Eco Volunteer you need to fill out the form below and you will then be added to our volunteer database. We use this database to inform our volunteers of any upcoming activities where we need volunteer involvement. These activities range from marine debris removal trips, to counting and sorting the collected debris, caring for marine turtles; land-based litter clean-ups; family fun-days and other events, as well as Eco Barge working bees.

There is never any pressure – if you are available on the day then we would always love to have you along to help, but we understand that our volunteers are busy people. We will therefore just email you with the details of any upcoming activities and leave it up to you whether you are able to join us or not!

It must be noted though that the marine debris removal trips are highly weather dependent and so we are generally only able to give one to two days notice for this activity.
