Mar 2014

On Thursday 20 March 2014, 18 keen crew from long-time ‘Gold’ level sponsor Travel Corporation joined us for a clean-up on Auckland’s iconic Rangitoto Island.

In perfect late-summer weather volunteers headed along the coastal walkway from Rangitoto Wharf, past the historic baches – some built almost 100 years ago – to Flax Point. The team started their clean-up there, heading around the Point along the rocky coast and back, picking up 850 litres of rubbish along the way. Overall an impressive 2,609 individual items were removed from the coast: a great effort on Rangitoto’s challenging volcanic terrain.

This type of hands-on action proves to be an excellent, practical, fun way for anyone to learn about how the constant stream of litter from Auckland’s streets flows out through storm drains and affects the islands of the Hauraki Gulf.

A massive thank you to Travel Corporation not only for your fantastic effort on the day, but for your ongoing support.
