We had a wonderful day at our annual Matakohe-Limestone Island trip with 40 participants! The initial departure time was delayed due to the fog, but once it cleared it was an absolutely stunning day! The day started off with a beach-clean-up, followed by a walk around the island and making some amazing rubbish art in the afternoon
A massive thank you to Whangarei District Council for funding this trip, Anton Bowker from Eco Solutions for the bees wax wraps and the games, and Manue Martinez for coming along and introducing the participants to Te Tai Tokerau Debris Monitoring Project! We picked up and counted 863 pieces of rubbish that would have otherwise traveled further down the harbour and out to sea!
