Port Noarlunga Beach Clean | Sea Shepherd
Celebrate Marine Park of the Month by taking part in this FREE Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign event at Port Noarlunga.
This time there will be some amazing guests along with a first ever fun run. Learn more about what a Marine Park is, about plastic pollution and help the environment while in the process. Beach clean-ups play a vital part in fighting against plastic pollution. 70% of trash that enters the water, sinks.
The primary reason for the location of this event at the Port Noarlunga Jetty is to celebrate the Department of Environment and Water’s (DEW) celebration of Noarlunga as Marine Park of the Month. DEW’s marine park rangers will be in attendance with a number of fun educational activities for the kids.
For those up for a bit of exercise, there’s the opportunity to join in a fun run hosted by Jonathan McMillan who is keen to raise awareness for his entry to the ‘Bali Hope Run/Walk raising money toward recycling facilities and education in Bali.
Starting with sign up at 10am, the run will start at 10:15am. Participants can run just as far as they feel up to on the day (full run is 4.5km) then enjoy a walk back to the jetty collecting rubbish on the way back.
Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries:
The team from Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries will also be present, to talk about their public snorkeling events – many of which happen off the Port Noarlunga reef over summer.
SA Men’s Health Club:
The ‘SA Men’s Health Club’ (a welcoming social group whose goal is to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of their members and set a positive example for all men) will be attending and they will be happy to talk to anyone wanting to learn more about their organisation.
Everyone of all ages are welcome – some buckets, gloves and tongs are supplied but if you have some to bring then please do.
- 10:25am | Rubbish runners meet
- 10am – 12pm | Beach clean with time for all willing participants to count and sort the rubbish for recording on a database
What to bring:
- Water in a reusable container
- Be SunSmart
- Wear closed-in shoes
- Bring a hat
- If you have them, please take along tongs and reusable gloves.
This is a Single Use Plastic Free event so ensure everything you take there is reusable.
