Clean Up Australia Day is on Sunday, 3 March 2019.Clean Up Australia Day 2019

It’s the perfect opportunity to join with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to remove all the rubbish accumulating in your local park, bushland, beaches and waterways before it kills our wildlife.

Every single one of us can make a difference!

Over the past 29 years, this single annual event has been supported by more than 33 million volunteer hours, and responsible for the clean-up of an estimated 350,000 ute-loads of rubbish across Australia – saving thousands of marine animals and birds from harmful and deadly plastic litter and pollution.

Wildlife Queensland branches throughout the state participate in Clean Up Australia Day actively and enthusiastically every year.

We encourage you to join a 2019 Clean Up event and continue the amazing work of Clean Up founder Ian Kiernan AO to make our state, our country and the world a better and cleaner place.

Let’s band together in Ian’s honour and continue his dream to Clean Up Australia.

Did you know Clean Up Australia Day and World Wildlife Day fall on the same day? 

The theme for World Wildlife Day 2019 is ‘Life below water: for people and planet’ and will be an opportunity to highlight the critical issues and values of marine wildlife to our everyday lives.

Sunday, 3 March 2019 presents a unique opportunity to celebrate World Wildlife Day 2019 by joining a Wildlife Queensland 2019 Clean Up event or search for a Clean Up Australia event near you and help reduce the threats from plastic pollution to our marine species.
