Eco Barge is excited to announce that 2016 will see further clean-ups taking place as part of Great Barrier Reef Clean-up, which is delivered by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and funded through the Australian Governments Reef Trust. This year Eco Barge will be running 12 marine debris removal trips, numerous count and sort activities along with a huge community focused land based clean-up from 8am – 11am on Saturday 14th May


Eco Barge has had the amazing opportunity to be involved in Sunsuper's Dreams for a Better World grant programme. On 20th December 2015 Eco Barge won the public voting round, winning an incredible $10,000. The Grand Final then took place on 4th February, Eco Barge came second, walking away with an outstanding $20,000 extra! Thats an amazing total of $30,000 to put towards to care of our sick and injured marine turtles and continuing to run the marine debris removal program. Thank you so much to everyone that has supported Eco Barge through this journey!

We could not have done it without all your support and voting so THANK YOU!
