Are you raising junior eco warriors? Here’s an event created by One Tonne Challenge just for them. So get in touch with the organisers to book in and share this to schools who may be interested. #bethechange #nextgenerationCalling all Junior Eco Warriors! We will be holding a Beach Clean Up and Education Day on 17/06 on the beautiful Fitzroy Island National Park and we want you there!

Our good friends at Experience Co have kindly donated ferry seats to get us there and part of the day will involve a visit to the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitiation Centre

Along with a beach clean up we will also be running short workshops on how you can reduce single use plastics from your daily lives and how to plan your own community clean up to inspire others!

Open to all school aged children (must be accompanied by a parent/guardian).

If you are interested, please follow the link below and tell us why you want to attend.
