On Tuesday 11 December, 10 staff from AMP joined our team for a day out cleaning-up Auckland’s iconic Rangitoto Island. Along a short but challenging stretch of coastal terrain the AMP crew mucked-in to remove 17 full sacks of rubbish, or 850 litres, from the lava rocks of Rangitoto Islands shores. A solid effort from a dedicated team of volunteers.
Many thanks also to our long-time partners in crime the Watercare Harbour Clean-up Trust for their logistical support.
Through hands-on actions like this over our past few years of operation we have found this to be an excellent, practical, fun way for organisations and their employees to learn about how litter from city streets flows out through our drains and affects our marine environments, even on uninhabited Rangitoto Island.
