Clean the Beach Together

Clean the Beach together

This activity suggests families or schools become involved in a community cleanup and learn about the significance of the local sea country at the same time. People also add ranger or scientific knowledge to their sea country knowledge to become more aware of the multiple ways to find out about  your sea country. People also collect data about rubbish collected on the beach  and add it to a national database about the patterns of rubbish found on Australian Beaches. This information is used to prosecute and name offenders.  We support Tangaroa Blue a non-profit group involved in Beach Cleanups in Queensland and elsewhere.

Written in a graphical format, people can share this activity with the group. Accompanying support materials are included.

The activity is designed to demonstrate how to address the Sea Country messages ( the content Indigenous Elders and Traditional Owners wanted young people to learn) in a family or group activity.
