Ports workers, local government employees and traditional land owners convened in Brisbane last month to learn techniques for marine pollution shoreline clean-up.
The OPEC Systems Shoreline Responders Course in Brisbane follows on the heels of four other marine pollution clean-up courses in Victoria and Queensland.
When marine pollution events occur, they come with a significant financial and environmental cost. In addition to a direct impact on fish, sea mammals, birds, habitats and breeding grounds, unresolved spills can lead to long term environmental consequences.
