River Patrol

The Sunshine Coast is home to the Maroochy and Mooloolah river, both of which suffer from litter pollution. This can have grave effects on aquatic life, water quality and important hydrological processes. For well over a decade our River Patrol volunteers have been removing litter from our waterways. Using our fleet of boats, our community-based volunteers cheerfully remove litter from our river banks, accessing tricky spots and improve the health and aesthetics of our catchment. The litter is then sorted, recycled and measured to report annual statistics on what’s been found. This program is run through ECOllaboration’s Maroochy Waterwatch and funded by the Sunshine Coast Council Environmental Levy.
