Untrashing Mapoon

Located approximately 900km north of Cairns on the western side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Mapoon is a remote aboriginal community with stunning coastlines and diverse marine life. 

Unfortunately, like many remote locations, Mapoon is facing a plastic crisis. 

In March, our Sea Shepherd Australia Marine Debris team headed to Mapoon for the first time to join forces with the Mapoon Land and Sea Rangers to tackle the marine debris problem. 

Watch the full video to find out about our clean-up mission. 

Thank you to the Mapoon Land and Sea Rangers as well as Queensland Police Services, Border Force, Bio Security and the Department of Agriculture, Fishing and Forestry who joined us on this clean-up.
