Sea Shepherd Beach Clean-up


Join Sea Shepherd as we participate in the #PlasticFreeJuly 2021 challenge at our Alexandra Headlands Clean-up.

July has become the month to create awareness of the environmental problems associated with plastics, in particular single-use plastic products. 

If you've never been to a beach clean-up, then this is the one for you!

50% of all plastic produced annually is made into single-use products, used for around 12 minutes on average. A large proportion of these items find their way into our waterways—we want to remove them before they get there and we need your help.

You can help protect our beaches, oceans, wildlife and the planet by joining us on Saturday 24th July 2021.

Keep your eyes peeled for a *SURPRISE* plastic free additional event at this clean-up, it will be announced here soon.

Event Details:

Date: Saturday 24 July 2021

Location: Alexandra Headlands, next to Alex surf club.

8.00 am Contact-less registration starts and Event commences with a safety briefing.

10.00 am Event concludes.

Grab a coat - it could be a cold one - and remember it could be a busy one. So arrive early and carpool where possible!

What to Bring:

  • Closed in Shoes are to be worn at all times
  • BYO gloves (Compulsory during COVID)
  • Be SunSmart
  • Reusable water bottle (no single use plastic, please)
  • If you are feeling unwell on the day, please do not attend.

**Please note we have implemented several changes to our cleanups to make them COVID Safe for all participants; however, due to the changing nature of Government restrictions, the above event details and schedule may change.

Sea Shepherd Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians upon whose ancestral lands we live and work. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present, and emerging, and acknowledge the continuing connection that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the land, sea, sky, and waterways. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
