Mega Clean Up at Flatrock Reserve Mt. Wellington
Litter, particularly plastic, has a major impact on wildlife with birds and fish becoming entangled or mistaking the litter for food, eating the plastic and feeding it to their young. As the plastic breaks into small fragments in the water it leaches potentially toxic chemicals into our rivers and seas, threatening our ocean wildlife and us. By coming out to one of our clean up days you will be making a difference to the amount of rubbish that enters this toxic cycle and creating awareness about steps that we can take to prevent further degradation by recycling and encouraging others to do so too.
Gloves, high-vis vests and other tools are supplied and you will be guided by a qualified team leader. Transportation will be provided from Conservation Volunteers Auckland office in Eden Terrace (bookings required) or you can meet on site at the park. We will wrap up with a sausage sizzle.
What to bring: Gumboots or closed toe shoes, appropriate clothing, rain and sun protective gear. We provide all tools and equipment needed for each activity. Limited transport available, make sure to book your seat. Please note: Children are to be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
Transportation will be provided from Conservation Volunteers Auckland Office in Eden Terrace (bookings required) at 9am or you can meet on site at 10am. Event will wrap up at 1pm.
