Last week we held two event nights at Melbourne and Brisbane where we launched our draft Threat Abatement Plan to reduce 70% of Australia's plastic pollution entering the ocean by 2020. The night's were a combination of in-depth policy content by Dave West who has championed the campaign, Toby Hutchinson our Queensland Manager, Jeff Angel and guest speakers Chris Wilcox a research scientist with CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research, Susie Crick, Winter Vincent and Pacha Light from the Surfrider Foundation who spoke about the urgent need to for action to protect our oceans.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the night for their interest and involvement on the issue. If you were unable to attend the event and for all those that attended please refer to this version for updated figures. You can download the Threat Abatement Plan HERE.
For any guests who attended the night that wish to follow up with partnership opportunities with the Boomerang Alliance please contact Jeff Angel at [email protected]
We look forward to consultation on the draft Threat Abatement Plan leading up to our official launch in mid 2017.
