Phillip Island Nature Parks has partnered with with Clean Up Australia Day in 2013, encouraging Victorians to help protect the habitat of Australia’s native little penguins and other wildlife.
“Phillip Island Nature Parks is home to one of the largest little penguin and Australian fur seal colonies in the country. We see first-hand the impacts of land and marine rubbish, including ingestion and entanglement.
“The new alliance brings together two not-for-profit organisations under one vision – to clean up and protect Australia’s natural environment for current and future generations,” said Matthew Jackson, CEO of Phillip Island Nature Parks.
About Clean Up Australia
In 1989 an 'average Australian bloke' had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard - Sydney Harbour. Since then Clean Up Australia has evolved into an organisation that works with the community, government and business to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year.
Clean Up Australia Day, held on the first Sunday of March every year, has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event and is a simple way you can take action to clean up, fix up and conserve our prized Australian environment.
Clean Up Australia shares the vision to clean up and conserve Australia’s natural environment. For more information visit www.cleanup.org.au/au
