Tarban Creek

By Mark Allerton Join Me

saving the planet, little bit by little bit

This mangrove area, with tiny harbour beaches, a sports ground and park, is a vital habitat for birds, fish, turtles and flying foxes, and a beautiful area for humans, too, not to mention their dogs. The water can be polluted by flotsam and jetsam from the sea and stormwater, and from rubbish blown in from the sports ground.  We need to be careful removing rubbish from the delicate mangrove and saltmarsh area, but the parkland and sports areas require less delicacy. There is a range of rubbish removal options, from the gentle walk around the park with a rubbish and a recylcing bag, to intrepid mangrove rubbish removal and even via kayak to pull the plastic bags out of the water.

Dear fekllow tarban Creek Cleaner-uppers,

Jan and I are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Don't forget your hats and sturdy footwear. We have gloves and block out for you, and our Clean Up base is even next to a bubbler, so you won't go thirsty. It looks like being a nice day. I checked the creek this afternoon and it looks like the kayak will be necessary for getting plastic bags out of the water.

Thanks again for volunteering,


Thank you to my Supporters
