Eco Barge Clean Seas is delighted by its new partnership with National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing. Minister for National Parks, Steve Dickson, said “Marine and national parks are a vital part of the Whitsunday’s economy and the life blood of the region’s tourism industry, so it’s important that community enterprises such as Eco Barge are supported in their drive to protect these natural areas”. This two-year partnership will support the Whitsunday Marine Debris Removal Program, as well as the QPWS marine animal stranding program by helping rescue and short-term care for stranded marine turtles.

COME CELEBRATE WITH US!!

We will therefore be holding a free sausage sizzle at Eco Barge HQ on Sunday 16th June from 12 until 2pm to celebrate these achievements with our volunteers and the community. It will be a family-friendly event with a jumping castle for the kids and a lucky door prize, generously donated by Ocean Rafting.
