Help Clean Up The Pin

April 24, 2016 @ 6:30 am - 1:00 pm

GCCA_CUTP+flyer_v2Every Gold Coast boatie, fisher, surfer and beach goer is urged to support Jacobs Well Fishing and Social Club annual Clean Up The Pin on Sunday 24th April.

Clean Up The Pin has been going for 20 years and members of the local fishing club expect this year to be bigger and not all for the right reasons.

President of Jacobs Well Fishing and Social Club, Kaye Mullen said, “We could think of better things to do on a Sunday rather than head out on our boats and clean up the Jumpinpin Passage. However, with increasing usage of Southern Moreton Bay and the islands more plastic and litter is ending up in the environment”.

In recent years awareness about the impacts of plastic in waterways and oceans has sparked community action around the world. The Gold Coast is no isolated case with over 600km of waterways and world-renowned beaches to keep clean.

If you have a boat and eager to protect The Pin enjoy please meet at 6:30am at the Jacobs Well boat ramp. There are opportunities to join other boats, although, spaces on boats are limited.

A breakfast BBQ will be provided for all volunteers. Land-based volunteers are needed from 9.00am to help record what is collected.

For more information please contact 5546 25 58
