Marine Debris Kayak Challenge – March

A couple of marine debris events are emerging as one of our volunteers from the University of Newcastle has helped to organise a marine debris kayak collection day for our last Landcare event. We traversed the intertidal areas of Hexham Island and the South Arm of the Hunter River at Scotts Point, Ash Island and collected, measured and recorded marine debris on March 12th with support from Port of Newcastle and Intrepid Landcare. We are also planning a monitoring session collecting and recording marine debris at Stockton Sandspit as part of the Australian Marine Debris Initiative’s database later in March.
