The Sunshine Coast branch looks after an extensive stretch of pristine coastline, from Caloundra to Noosa and on to Double Island Point. The branch keeps busy with regular beach clean-ups and dune care across the entire region, autonomously and in partnership with other local groups and councils. Educational presentations within schools and on the beaches. Our main local campaign is the award winning Double Island Clean Up Weekend, run twice a year, attracting an average of 200 volunteers consistently removing more than 5T off this paradise every year. We coordinate and manage the iconic EcoChallenge event run annually and sustainably since 2011. We also conduct environmental awareness & education presentations at local surf, music & community events. Stephen James is the president of the Sunshine Coast branch and can be contacted on 0403 821 968 and firstname.lastname@example.org
