Current SLiK Project:

Marina Debria: Casting the net to reduce marine debris in the D'Entrecasteaux

This is SLiK's third project and round of funding from NRM South, facilitating community engagement in stewardship of our beautiful natural environment.

 "Marina Debria", (below) is our mascot for raising awareness about  the source, impact and  possible mitigation of manmade marine debris in the channel.  She was created out of some of the marine debris collected during the "Kingborough Alliance: reducing waste in the marine and coastal environment" by over 70 stakeholders  in 2013/14.  You may have seen her at  Love Living Locally in March? 


Stakeholders came from a range of groups in the community including; kayakers, Bruny Is Boat Club, Dog Walkers, coastal residents, Tassal, UTas dive club, Coastcare, A Day on the Beach committee and MaST. Waste data continues to be collected and collated so that SLiK can target other stakeholder groups well placed to intervene in waste entering the coastal environment and to collaborate to mitigate it occurring. To keep abreast of Marina Debria's activities join the Marina Debria Collaboration on facebook.

The following awareness raising events are being planned for the coming year:

  • Woodbridge Jetty clean up 28th June
  • Schools creating art from trash with Marina Debria - Salvaged exhibition Oct 2015
  • Parents and children creating art from trash with Marina Debria at Kids Allowed 8th and 15th July for the Salvaged exhibition
  • Waste reduction at public jetties and boat ramps "Roundtable" (TBA)
  • Alonnah Beach clean up 26th October
  • Marina Debria at "A Day on the Beach" Australia Day 2016
  • Margate Jetty clean up (TBA).

If you are collecting marine debris or are concerned about marine debris in your area, please post it on facebook or email us
