TUDC is providing contributions over 2015-2017 period to the project “Casting the net of engagement and collaboration to reduce marine debris in the D’Entrecasteaux”,
We will engage in, and provide material to, schools on clean up dives, data collection and ongoing monitoring as part of curriculum activities (Woodbridge School, Margate Primary, Illawarra Primary and Hobart College),
Assist high school students in outdoor education programs by providing supervision in the water during practical classes held at the Woodbridge Marine Discovery Centre,
Underwater videography of rubbish “hotspots”, for presentation at the “Love Living Locally” Festival 2015, 2016, 2017
We also sit on a collaborative round table for us that regularly brings together a diverse range of stakeholders as a means of enabling farmers and fishers to adopt sustainable natural resource management initiatives.
Where there is communication and a feedback loop between those impacted by waste and those responsible for it, there is more likely to be an attitude shift along with policy changes to support practices that ultimately reduce marine debris!
This time we’re running a clean-up dive to Woodbridge Jetty!
Four of us spent 20 minutes on the jetty a couple of months ago, the haul was both diverse, and HUUUUUGE!
Come and join in for this free dive, we at TUDC love to do our bit.
Get in on the fun! We are having a BBQ and a few brews afterward, we’re asking a 5 dollar chuck in fee!
Bookings are closed for this event.
