Its all systems go for 2014 cleanup

Its been a great week leading up to the cleanup. Our fundraising benefit gig at the Repbublic Bar was a resounding success with over $1500 dollars raised from the door takings and Modern Musicians generous Guitar raffle. Many thanks to the bands - The Dave Wilson Band, Liveley Up and Plantation who rocked the house and kept the patrons dancing late into the night.

Our Pozible crowd funding project has reached the $2000 goal with a week to go so we will be able to buy some equipment to monitor the beaches from the air and a beach cart to make the long rubbish drags a bit less of a mission. Its not to late to donate so if you would like to help out please make a donation.

Many thanks to all those who have contributed.

2014 Cleanup - 1 month till departure

The 2014 edition of the South West Marine Debris Cleanup will depart on the 4th April to the beaches of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the commercial fishermen who provide our safe passage we can return to the beaches which over the past 14 years have yielded over 150,000 items of marine debris.

This year the cleanup fleet of the Velocity skippered by Dave Wyatt, The Breaksea (Darren Clark) and the Diamantina III (Stuart Gould) will be carrying a team of 20 keen volunteers.
