Marine Debris Removal Program & Whitsunday Turtle Rescue

Eco Barge Clean Seas Inc. mission is to minimize the devastating effects marine debris pollution has on marine life.

We do this by running a constant Marine Debris Removal Program for the Whitsunday Islands and surrounding coastlines and with the Whitsunday Turtle Rescue Centre to help care for sick and injured turtles for the Whitsunday and Mackay Region.

By removing the mass build up of plastic pollution and caring for marine turtles in need we are directly helping to protect the local marine life and all marine life in the Great Barrier Reef from the devastating effects plastic pollution causes to vulnerable sea creatures, great and small.
