Beach Clean Ups
Plastic pollution impacts our environment, the health of our wildlife, and human health. We invite schools, families and members of the public to join us on beach clean-ups to combat it.
Think of the beach as a bridge between the land and the marine environment. It’s a critical biodiversity area. Cleaning our beaches is a step towards cleaning our oceans. After a first successful Beach Clean Up for Clean Up Week 2021, the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark team is looking to organise regular Beach Clean Ups in our area. Please find below all information about the next event and register if you would like to join us.
Sign up to our monthly newsletters so you won't miss any Geopark news or upcoming events.
THANK YOU - Our Clean Up bags are generously donated by 'Our Seas Our Future' and being re-used as often as possible. The Waitaki District Council and the Waitaki Resource Recovery Park have also agreed to waive the fee on the rubbish collected by the volunteers.
