Our community volunteer group – the CAFNEC Marine Response Team – are excited to be coordinating this project with the support of the Cairns Regional Council and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.

Our goal is to get the Cairns community working together to protect our waterways, ocean and reef by stenciling messages on drains to raise awareness of urban stormwater pollution and its impact on our local marine environment.
