Event impacts

What an awesome evening we had cleaning the coastline of St Helier’s Beach! 25 epic volunteers showed up, despite the fierce wind and dwindling sun. Murry Sweetpants kept us going with some breezy beachside beats and The Sustainable Food Co. nourished us with delicious kai! 

Huge thank you for the mahi of all who attended as we were able to make a massive positive impact on our coastlines!

Big thank you to everyone who has RSVP’d to our Friends of SC event this week. Sadly, we’ve made the decision to cancel this event, due to various happenings in the SC whānau.

It looked like there was going to be a great turnout, and we were so looking forward to seeing you and sharing our strategy to help put an end to ocean pollution 🌊 

The next time we can all get together will be the Sustainable Coastlines Fundraising Ball. So if you haven’t yet got your tickets, head to Humanitix and we’ll see you there!

Event Cancelled

We’re sorry to announce that the much Rangers for the Ocean clean-ups have been cancelled due to rising Omicron cases in the community.

Both Sustainable Coastlines and Part Time Ranger teams are gutted to have to miss out on an epic day with each and every one of you while cleaning up Takapuna and St Heliers, but this is done as a precaution to keep everyone safe.
We really appreciate your support and hope you can make the next date, which we’ll announce in a few months’ time.
