On Saturday March 25, 2017, Sustainable Coastlines and Kathmandu invite Kathmandu Summit Club members to the beautiful Motuihe Island for a day of outdoor coastal clean-up action! Motuihe, just like many of the islands in the Hauraki Gulf, catches the flow of Auckland’s rubbish on the out-going tide. Plastic and micro-plastics can now be found washed up amongst the driftwood and sand.
Summit Club members are invited to join us, free of charge, for a Summit Club Adventure on the Gulf to give some love back to Motuihe Island. Get in quick as spaces are limited! All attendees must register through the quick form below.
