Aotea/Great Barrier Island Coastal Clean-up a huge success

Aotea Great Barrier

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped remove 2.8 tonnes of rubbish during the event!

We are overwhelmed with the success of our massive coastal clean-up event on Aotea/Great Barrier Island on the 3rd & 4th of April. Hundreds of volunteers tackled the rugged coastlines on foot, from boats and in kayaks to remove over 2.8 tonnes of rubbish from the remote island – a true show of their passion to Keep New Zealand Beautiful.

Over 230 children, parents and teachers from low-decile schools, along with hoards of young locals, cleaned the beaches of Tryphena Harbour. This was made possible by the Lion Foundation. More details are on our event page here.
