hideAWAY update May 1st 2017

Posted by on

Thanks so much to the wonderful volunteers who assisted with our beach cleanup at Wurtulla on Sunday April 30th

Volunteers removed a total of 127kg of debris in under 2 hours.  A massive effort by all. Some of the items removed were
·         13 chairs
·         33 plastic bottles
·         81 glass bottles
·         66 aluminium cans
·         2 ironing boards
 
Using this data, it is easy to work out that this area is being used by young people to party after dark.  They take down their drinks and chairs and set up camp fires, possibly fishing as well.  This information is provided to Council so that they can ensure there are more beach patrols by either rangers or QPWS. 
Stayed tuned for our next beach effort and many thanks to Ocean Crusaders for facilitating this initiative! We look forward to working with you more.
