Adopt a Drain: Great new initiative in Cairns!

Everyone needs to check out this AMAZING stop motion video put together by Riley Luckett, a Cairns primary school student who has been a part of the Holloways Beach Environmental Education Centre‘s enrichment program this year. Riley is asking the residents of Cairns to ‘Adopt a Drain in their street to reduce the urban waste entering our oceans via the storm water network. Go Riley!! How do you adopt a drain? Simply go outside and pick one, then it’s your responsibility to make sure the drain remains clean – pick up the rubbish in your street and make sure the drains aren’t clogged with palm fronds and other garden debris, you’ll be thanking Riley when the wet season comes!
