A returning tide of trash: Djulpan 2022

Tucked away in a remote corner of the Northern Territory in Australia and hours from any town, Djulpan beach in Arnhem Land has been suffocating under a blanket of plastic.

Last month, Sea Shepherd volunteers joined Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation rangers for a third year to help remove plastic pollution from its shores.

Over 10 days, 11 volunteers removed a shocking 10 tonnes of trash across just 4.5km of remote beach. The sheer density of the trash called for the use of shovels and rakes.

The area is home to endangered and vulnerable species, including turtles, dolphins, sharks and dugongs.

This level of plastic pollution is absolutely devastating to these populations.
