Travel Corp Rangitoto Island Clean-up | Sustainable Coastlines

Event impacts

Event Details

On Monday 25 March, 11 staff from our long-time ‘Gold’ level sponsor Travel Corp joined our crew for a clean-up on Auckland’s iconic Rangitoto Island.

Volunteers trooped an hour west from Rangitoto Wharf to McKenzie Bay, starting their clean-up there and heading north along the rocky coast to pick up over 325 litres of rubbish. Overall an impressive 3,084 individual items were removed from the coast: a great effort on Rangitoto’s challenging 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 all Travel Corp staff not only for your fantastic effort on the day, but for your ongoing support. A big thanks also to the Watercare Harbour Clean-up Trust for helping out with rubbish logistics, your support is always much appreciated.
