About

Moreton Bay is one of Queensland’s most important coastal resources, stretching over 1500 square kilometres with a catchment area 14 times that.

In 2014, the Queensland Government revoked all funding for keeping our bay beautiful, meaning hundreds of thousands of pieces of litter went into our waterways threatening the lives of many of our endangered marine animals.

Something needs to be done! We need your help to make a difference and keep our bay beautiful.

My name is Troy Robbins and I have been a passionate environmentalist for over 30 years. During this time I have taken it upon myself to keep the bay beautiful but as it is such a big expanse of coastline I need your help!

For the past 10 years I have been collecting bag after bag of rubbish from our waterways. Hundreds of hours have been spent traveling the many islands and estuaries of the bay collecting and documenting litter that others have left behind.

The Documentary 

We are proposing a 30 minute documentary following my journey over the next 8 months highlighting the impacts litter is having on our environment and showing proactive ways of reducing this litter. 

During this time I will document every single piece of litter I collect and the photos, videos and data records collected will be used to create a documentary. I am hoping that by bringing awareness to the amount of litter found in Moreton Bay I will help to secure government funding for the future and show that this is a real issue that is impacting our environment now.

So we need your help to get the ball rolling. Please give what you can and share my story to help play your part in keeping our bay beautiful, and please, Walk On By No More!  Because local impacts, have global consequences.
