Beach Clean Up 4

Locals are encouraged to lend a hand to help make a positive impact on the environment by removing waste that can be harmful to marine life.

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast will host a Mooloolaba Beach clean as part of the SEA LIFE Trust Global Beach Clean. The SEA LIFE Trust is global marine conservation charity and clean-ups will be taking place in conjunction with SEA LIFE Aquariums around the world throughout July. Volunteers are asked to meet at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast at 7am and participants are invited to take part in a FREE beach yoga session with Zenko Yoga!
Participants at both clean up events are asked to BYO gloves.

Not only is the litter washing up on local shores an unpleasant sight; it also harms and kills marine wildlife. According to Ocean Crusaders, it is believed there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in our oceans causing over 100,000 marine mammals to die globally each year. Turtles, whales, dolphins, sea lions and sea birds are particularly susceptible to plastic pollution.
