APPOINT ECOMARINES AMBASSADORS
We have been running our schools program since 2014. Adults keep asking us how they can get involved - so we have now built our Corporate Program so adults can get involved with EcoMarines too!
Simply put a call out and see who wants to be involved.
CREATE YOUR ACTION PLAN
Now that you have your EcoMarines team underway, it's now time to have a group meeting and work out a bit of a plan!
Below you will find a list of challenges, activities and ideas to help get you started.
SPREAD THE WORD
Now that you have a bit of a plan, a great ways to get others involved is spread the word, tell them about EcoMarines, why you want to be involved and how they can help.
We have put together a few resources that might help. You might like to hold a morning tea and do a presentation - or if that's not suitable, send out a group email.

EcoMarines organise two corporate volunteer litter clean-up days in May in August each year.
Each event includes special presentations from EcoMarines student ambassadors, traditional cultural presentations, short screening of A Plastic Ocean documentary, litter collection (hosted by Brisbane City Council), litter audit (hosted by Conservation Volunteers Australia), and lunch with networking opportunities.
Join us for an experience to remember and help keep our waterways litter-free!
These are FREE events and numbers are limited.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government’s Community Sustainability Action grant program.
