Cooloola Coastcare invites you to prevent litter ending up in our oceans where marine and coastal animals are impacted. They’ll be scouring the roadsides and beaches in Rainbow Beach and on the access roads to remove as much plastic and rubbish as possible.

We can save fish from slow deaths caused by ingesting plastics, and so many more native animals.Not to mention making the area more beautiful for all the humans as well.
