Marine Debris

Friends has applied for grant funds from the Community Environment program 2020 to do marine debris collections along the shores of Ash Island. IF we are successful we have selected the following potential dates. The tide has to be at its lowest between 9am-ish and 10.30 – gives participants and supervisors time to get everyone briefed and suited up in their PPE before heading off into the tidal zone in the mangroves and along the shoreline to collect polluting rubbish as the water rises.
