The ninth annual Darwin Harbour Clean Up will be held on Tuesday 10th July 2018 at various locations around Darwin Harbour. The NT Seafood Council has handed over the reins of this fantastic event to Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) for 2018 and beyond.
What is the Darwin Harbour Clean Up?
This event raises awareness about the sources of rubbish ending up in the sea and encourages everyone to ‘bin it or take it with you’. This year’s focus is on single-use plastics and their impact on our oceans and marine wildlife. #DHCU
At 8.30am on the 10th July, registered onshore and water teams across the Harbour will commence their clean up efforts. Collection teams will deliver their rubbish to two sorting and recording sites: at the end of Fishermen’s Wharf (on the rock wall side), and on Cox Peninsula at the Wagait Shire Council Community Centre, where rubbish will be analysed under the supervision of the Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
