Casuarina Coastal Reserve Management Plan April 2016 Page 22 Much of the litter and waste not placed in bins and left in the Reserve finds its way to the beach and the sea. Large piles of rubbish, comprised largely of wrappings or spent firework casings, are left behind after Territory Day celebrations. A targeted response is required by Rangers, sometimes in association with Larrakia Aboriginal rangers and also Corrections personnel. Regular local clean up events are conducted by local community groups, e.g. Clean Up Australia Day, Darwin Harbour Clean-Up. There are many Reserve users who regularly undertake their own voluntary litter patrols. Their efforts make a big difference along creek lines and in bushland areas. There are presently no recycling points provided in the Reserve, and, if provided this could assist in reducing rubbish left in the Reserve. Rubbish dumped in the Reserve can be harmful to wildlife Management Actions Continue regular litter patrols Maintain support of local community groups conducting regular clean ups Replace old bins and provide recycling points Educate visitors about the dangers and hazards of litter through ranger interaction and postings on the Parks and Wildlife facebook page.
