Do you know that not only are our oceans teaming with marine life, but they are also increasingly polluted by plastic bottles, crates, buckets, packing materials, plastic microbeads, fishing nets, cigarette butts, rope, light globes, food packaging, gloves, fishing gear and plastic bags? Try saying all that in one breath!



Our turtles, marine mammals and sea birds are injured by this pollution and are often found entangled, causing them injury or even death from restricted mobility, starvation, infection, amputation, drowning or smothering.

The Sea Shepherd's Marine Debris Campaign (MDC) team is inviting you to share their love of the ocean and our beaches and join in a fantastic event dedicated to cleaning our marine and beach areas and effecting real change in the lives of our marine life.



The Port Gawler clean will be held at the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary, Port Gawler from 9 am to 12 pm on Sunday 21 February 2021. Contactless registration will commence at 8.45 am with the clean commencing at 9 am with a safety briefing.

Bring along gloves (compulsory BYO and wearing due to COVID-19), a reusable water bottle (no single-use plastic, please), sunscreen or wear a long-sleeved shirt and wear closed in shoes or crocs to protect your feet from sharp fishing gear and other hazardous items.



The team will be joined by divers from Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries and you can choose to dive with them or stay on and with the MDC team.

Everyone is welcome and there is no need to register before the event. Come along and do your bit to keep our beaches and oceans healthy and protect our marine life.

Be COVID safe. Please check in on the SA Government COVID-Safe App, wear your mask and social distance.
