MARINE DEBRIS REMOVAL

It may not seem like much on the surface, but removing even the tiniest pieces of marine debris can make an impact.

Did you know that plastic doesn't biodegrade? It just breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces, where it becomes micro plastics.  These plastics enter the ocean and waterways and are consumed by us as well as our food sources.

By taking any plastic that is found, out of the cycle of pollution, you can make an impact.

The Whitsundays are home to some of the most spectacular beaches in the world, and so

much is being done by local and further groups to help keep these areas clean, but often it is the large items of debris that are picked up, and not the smaller pieces of plastic.

Our staff have recently been trained on sorting of marine debris for the Australian Marine Debris Database.

Red Cat Adventures has also been a long term supporter of Eco Barge Clean Seas - the original volunteer group that focuses on the removal of marine debris from as many beaches as possible around the Whitsunday Islands.  Without these hard working volunteers, the islands would be as pristine as they are now.
