ECO Barge Clean Seas is urging Whitsunday locals to do their bit to save local marine life this October.

As part of the Operation Clean Seas initiative, Eco Barge will be undertaking two land-based clean-ups this month, part of more than 12 clean-ups across Great Barrier Reef coastline.

Eco Barge project coordinator Jacki Smith said whether it was individuals cleaning their closest foreshore, businesses cleaning their street or those out on the water heading to an island to remove marine debris, every piece of litter that was removed was important.

“It is one less item that can impact our precious marine life through entanglement or ingestion,” she said.

The first clean-up will take place this Saturday, in conjunction with Cruise Whitsundays, and will focus on removing litter from the Airlie Beach foreshore to the Port of Airlie Marina.

Meeting points will be set-up at the Airlie Beach foreshore and the Cruise Whitsundays terminal, and volunteers should meet at either location to register at 8am. A free thank you barbecue will then be provided for everyone who was involved at the Airlie Beach Markets from 10am.

The second clean-up will be run next Saturday, October 31, in conjunction with Abell Point Marina.
