forces for clean up
luka and GeoCatch teamed up in October to clean up a 1 km stretch of Dalyellup Beach. The effort was part of the annual Tangaroa Blue Foundation WA Beach Clean Up, which has been running for 15 years at beaches across the state.
Over 60 kg of rubbish was collected at the site, consisting mostly of glass and plastics, with a large amount of burnt rubber also found. Most of the items originated from the beach, having been left behind by visitors.
Iluka’s Travis Drysdale approached GeoCatch to see how his crew could get involved in local environmental projects.
“Our corporate volunteering program is all about giving back to the community. It’s great to see our efforts are feeding into a national database of marine debris research,” he said
