Date: 31st Jan 2018
Location: Whitsunday Island and Hamilton Island
Partner: Reef Catchments
Debris Removed: 146 kilograms
Today marked not only the first Marine Debris Removal Trip of 2018, but also Eco Barge’s 250th trip! It was a fantastic day out on the water, visiting the islands and removing marine debris. We found that the beaches cleaned today were heavily impacted with micro plastics, which is very time consuming and fiddly to remove. Our Volunteers persevered and we left each beach looking pristine.
