The Challenge

Western Cape York coastlines have one of the highest concentrations of marine debris and ghost nets in Australia, where discarded coastal and fishing gear flow down on currents from surrounding countries. Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger groups and environmental clean-up groups regularly remove marine debris from the remote beaches, which are important marine turtle nesting sites.

Solution

The ‘Hunter Gatherers Mamas’ project will enble remote communities to transform marine litter into valuable artworks. Supported by a new online marketplace, tailored training and essential repurposing equipment to produce artworks from ghost net and marine debris, this programme facilitates women in remote communities in Northern Australia to turn plastic pollution into a creative revenue opportunity.
