Yakima attended the annual Fraser Island Clean Up event on 5 - 8 May.
4WD QLD started this event 17 years ago, organising for clubs from across the state to head over to the island and band together to collect general rubbish, flotsam and jetsam washed ashore by the tides and the weather systems that hit the Queensland Coastline.
This year volunteers collected plastic such as netting, bottles, fluoro fishing tubes and wheely bins!
Part of the cleanup also involves removing weeds and introduced vegetation to help native species thrive. Return volunteers were able to see the difference their efforts from previous years had made to the overall landscape.
