National Day of Action - Congwong Beach clean up + activities!Conservation Volunteers Australia
#SeaToSource a project powered by Conservation Volunteers Australia welcomes to you attend our biggest event of the year, our National Day of Action. By 2050, there’s set to be more plastic in the oceans than fish. In fact, right now, one garbage truck of rubbish enters the ocean every minute. We believe we can do something about this, so we’re choosing to take action – and we’d love you to join us. By joining us for a day you can contribute to a lifetime of change for our oceans. By taking part in our #SeaToSource National Day of Action, you’re joining a nationwide community of people choosing to be part of the solution (not the pollution). Our #SeaToSource National Day of Action is an opportunity to come together to make change for oceans and waterways around the country. From the wild beaches of Western Australia to the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef, we will be taking action for our waterways. We welcome you to join us in La Perouse at Congwong Beach and Cann Park on February 18th. All equipment and guidance is provided, and the day will be supervised by our CVA Revive Project Officers who live and work near the waterways we’ll all be caring for. There will be variety of family-friendly stalls and activities, and opportunities for you to have your say on how ocean litter can be tackled. We’ll be joined by groups such as Diver Dave, Defy Design, Little Feet Facepainting, Trash Fish Recycled and more for a range of exciting activities including hands on stalls, jewellery making workshops, eco friendly face painting and games.
