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.
