In photos: who cleaned up for our hatchlings

It was a stunning summer morning as our community came together to clean up for our Sunshine Coast hatchlings.

Our wildlife friendly community once again showed how much they love our Sunshine Coast baby turtles, coming together to tidy up their local beach as part of the 10th anniversary of the annual Clean Up For The Hatchlings event on Saturday, February 3.

From the young of age to the young of heart, almost 650 people, pulled on their gloves and worked together to remove 226 kilograms of rubbish and debris from beach locations between Noosa and Caloundra.

Afterwards, they headed back to Coopers Lookout Park, Buddina, to count the debris and enjoy a free barbeque, educational talks and kids activities corner.

On behalf of our event partners - Reef Check Australia, Unitywater, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium and Noosa Council - we would like to thank the volunteers for helping to give the little hatchlings the best start in life.



Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share. We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging, and acknowledge the important role First Nations people continue to play within the Sunshine Coast community.
