RETURN (rubbish from the beach) & EARN (shark bucks)

Port Stephens Local Area

2 Jessie Rd, Anna Bay NSW, Australia

Organized by Sea Shelter

This World Ocean Day, to support the amazing Sea Shelter, Irukandji is giving away Shark Bucks which are valid dollar for dollar at Irukandji. What does this mean?… on the 5th of June you can make a difference and be rewarded for it!

A recent study has found Australia is at the top of the list of nations generating single-use waste on a per capita consumption basis, ahead of everybody including the United States, South Korea and Britain. So much of this waste ends up in our waterways and finds itself in the digestive systems of many marine animals.

The effects of this are devastating to wildlife and the entire ecosystem, Sea Shelter and Irukandji do everything they can to support, protect and regenerate ocean habitat and they are huge supporters of WORLD OCEAN DAY’S 2021 30X30 message- Protect 30% of the world by 2030!

ON JUNE 5 ~ WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY 2021 Irukandji is giving back to those who care about the ocean – Limited spots- register fast to book your spot and join in for fun and rewards on the day.

Spending the Shark Bucks are valid for any activity at Irukandji Shark & Ray Encounters plus a very special grand prize for the participant who collects the most amount of rubbish!


For the past 5 years, Sea Shelter has been rescuing sea turtles, sharks and rays who have been found injured or unwell in our local waterways. After spending time under the care of our volunteers at the Sea Shelter hospital some of them regain enough health to be able to be released back into the ocean. Sending a healthy animal back to its home environment is a very special event and we’ve decided to offer this amazing opportunity as a reward to the family who collect the most amount of rubbish on June 5th.

The winner on the day will be a VIP the next time a turtle is ready to go back to the wild they will have the honour of carrying it down to the water and setting it free. They deserve this incredible prize to show just how important removing plastic from our waterways is and how they contributed to the restoration of the health of our oceans and its inhabitants!
