Queenstown Beach Clean Up - Sea Shepherd NZ & Sustainable Queenstown


Environmental Improvement - Beach Clean Up

Organisation Summary:
 
Sea Shepherd New Zealand is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
 
Sustainable Queenstown is a group of like-minded locals engaging the community in actively seeking sustainable solutions through collaboration, connectedness and fun events. We are always on the hunt for change-agents, so if you are a rebel with a cause, come and join us!
 
In Queenstown we work on Queenstown Bay Beach, Gardens and surrounding water area's to keep them clean and free from waste.
 
Time Committment:
 
The key area we need support with is our Queenstown Bay monthly beach clean which is supported by the QLDC. Just a few hours a month!
 
Tasks:
 
Volunteers meet at 10am at Memorial Arch on Marine Parade. Everyone mucks in and picks up rubbish from the beach leaving it as clean as possible at the end of the session. Gloves and rubbish bags are provided.
 
Skills Required:
 
A willingness to muck in and clear up the beach whilst meeting like minded people.
 
Skills Gained:
 
Understanding the affects trash has on the environment and water ways. A social few hours and satisfaction from knowing you've done your bit to help the local environment.
 
No need to sign up officially - just rock up and meet other volunteers at 10am - Memorial Arch on the beach front and enjoy! Contact us for upcoming dates.
