Event Details

Feb 2019

On Saturday 9 February 2019 we had yet another amazing day for the Weta Digital sponsored beach cleanup of Miramar and Evan’s Bay. The keen crew from Weta Digital, Weta Workshop, family, friends and locals all showed up at Scorching Bay right around 9:30am to give some love to this fantastic peninsula.

Once again the weather was fantastic with light northerlies to keep us cool.

At registration everyone picked up their event T-Shirt at the Sustainable Coastlines tent and we opened the day with a chat and safety brief from Sustainable Coastlines’ Wellington crew.  Weta Digital have sponsored us for the past four years!

Each year we’re expanding, and this year more than 170 participants picked up more than 5000 litres of large, small and strange pieces of plastic from around Miramar, Cau Bay and Evan’s Bay

After a couple of hours of heads down under the sun, everyone headed back to base for a well-deserved lunch.

The crew were then treated to the amazing sounds of the Dauphine of Mississippi and enjoyed the delicious food from Martin, Robbie and the team.

Huge thanks to Amy and the awesome team at Weta Digital – we really couldn’t do our work without your help.

Thanks sponsors: Hirepool for the generator and canopies, and phoenix drinks for the delicious organic refreshment. Finally thank you to the Sustainable Coastlines’ crew – Brook-Kasey Joseph and Ben Knight who kept everyone motivated and safe.

Looking forward to doing it all again next year!
