A Cracker of a Beach Clean

Territory Day, or cracker night, is a highlight on the Top End calendar. Territorians and visitors gather on Mindil Beach to watch fireworks illuminate the Timor Sea.

Last year the Darwin Aquaculture Centre collected 2 full bags of cracker pollution the morning after. This pollution would have ended up in the ocean and some would be consumed by our marine life, including sea turtles. It is estimated that half of all sea turtles have consumed plastic pollution.

This year we are gathering the troops for a post-cracker night beach clean!

Bring hats, sunscreen and water. Gloves and bags will be provided. Please join us to keep our Top End coasts (and turtles) healthy after the big celebration.
