Queenstown Bay Beach Clean

Free Event

Sea Shepherd New Zealand is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
 
Sustainable Queenstown is a group of like-minded locals engaging the community in actively seeking sustainable solutions through collaboration, connectedness and fun events. We are always on the hunt for change-agents, so if you are a rebel with a cause, come and join us!
 
In Queenstown we work on Queenstown Bay Beach, Gardens and surrounding water area's to keep them clean and free from waste.
 
Time Committment:
 
The key area we need support with is our Queenstown Bay monthly beach clean which is supported by the QLDC. Just a few hours a month!
