Grab your family, a picnic rug or camp chair and celebrate what makes Roebuck Bay the richest known intertidal mudflat in the world! At this FREE community event see up-close amazing pictures of the animals of the mudflats, what the scientists and young people of Broome have discovered in the mud, and how they translated this into art. This will be followed by a free re-screening of the Mud and Saltwater Short Film Fest provided by Roebuck Bay Working Group.
Free event: Gold coin donations welcome 🙂

There is positive momentum (monthly clean-ups) to reduce debris in Roebuck Bay. To keep the momentum, RBWG and Tangaroa Blue are holding a Litter and Pollution Reduction Workshop to reduce marine debris. As Heidi Taylor from Tangaroa Blue said, “If all we do is clean-up, that’s all we’ll ever do. Understanding where litter and marine debris is coming from, enables us to tackle the release at the source, reducing the amount of litter entering the beautiful Broome environment in the first place.”
Roebuck Bay Working Group is comprised of Traditional Owners and government, local community, conservation groups and business. We work collaboratively to solve issues, raise awareness and encourage research and monitoring which supports responsible management and protection of Roebuck Bay.
