Great Northern Cleanup Christmas Island
Updated: Nov 28, 2020
Big thank you to the legends who took part in the Great Northern Cleanup at Dolly Beach, Christmas Island
Our Dolly Beach is one of our prized island gems and looks like something out of a movie.
It’s a 2km jungle trek from the car park (with boardwalk of course).
Also, Dolly is a popular turtle , coconutcrab and seabird habitat .
What we collected was international waste that was washed ashore eg, plastic bottles, lids, shoes, styrofoam, rope, straws, lighters, soft plastic, and hard plastic fragments.
Reusable (can be recycled)
Number of sacks collected: 33
Total weight: 119.5
