Waterway litter, particularly plastics, pose a serious threat to our turtles and other marine wildlife. Current research shows that up to 30% of turtle deaths in Moreton Bay are caused by the ingestion of plastic litter.

Healthy Waterways Clean Up crew collect over 250,000 items of floating litter from South East Queensland's waterways every year.

LACA VETO and Greater Logan Canoe Club - supported by HEALTHY WATERWAYS are showing this film  to launch our local Logan Plastic Pollution Revolution.

Come along, watch film learn more about  why and what we all care about.

Logan River is one of our city's greatest natural treasures.   Turtles Gutful RGB logo

 

We do not want it to be a drain carrying plastic - or any litter - down to 

Moreton Bay where these bits - that NEVER BIODEGRADE - will harm marine life.

Floating human litter and other carelessly discarded items also reduce our human pleasure in river related activities.

You are also invited to take part in our CLEANUP AUSTRALIA DAY - RIVER CLEANUP on Sunday 3 March at Larry Storey Park Waterford.
