Event description
Join us for the final strawkle of 2021 in Manly Cove! We're going out with a bang - followed by drinks/lunch at the pub!

About this event

What is a strawkle?

A strawkle is a snorkel for straws and other marine debris. Since Summer 2018, volunteers have collectively removed over 5,000+ straws from Manly Cove.

What do you need for the event?

For the strawkle:

  • You must bring your own snorkel, mask, and fins. Wetsuits are optional but recommended due to the temperature of the water.
  • If you don't have snorkel gear, contact our friends at Pittwater Eco Adventures to rent some for the event.
  • You must be a competent swimmer and confident in the water, and already know how to snorkel as we do not provide training.
  • If you’re a hot beverage drinker we’d also love for you to bring your keep cup to save waste entering back into our environment.

    What happens at the event?

    • Before 10am: Meet on the grass patch outside the Manly Art Gallery and Museum.
    • 10am: Briefing and gear up.
    • 10:10-11am: Cleanup
    • 11-11:30am: Debris sort, count, document and disposal.
    • (Optional) After 11:30am: Mosey our way to the pub for some end of year celebratory drinks and food.
