The Magnetic Island Scavenge
Despite the gray skies and pitter-patter of rain we jumped on the Fantasea Ferry ute fully loaded and volunteers checked in on Sealink. As we crossed the stretch of water between Townsville and Magnetic Island the clouds began to part. There was no way Reef Check Australia’s first Island Scavenge was going to be anything less than a sun-filled day of good times!
It was an epic success. Overall 60 pairs of hands collected 115kg of litter, including 32kg of recycling and 1,296 butts. We had over a 100kg of pre-loved clothes, books, toys and more that were donated by the local community.
Thanks for the good vibes Maggie Island!
