Operation Crayweed in the news and reaches first target!

The Operation Crayweed Crew has been so excited at the media interest in the project since launch.

We have so far enjoyed coverage from Nine News and ABC News, weekend coverage from The Sydney Morning Herald and The Huffington Post. Ziggy and Alex have been interviewed for radio this morning (Monday). What an incredible way to start our campaign.

Check out some of the coverage on the Operation Crayweed facebook page. Excuse the audio quality on the files!

Thanks in part to the solid media attention over the last few days, we are extremely proud to announce that we have achieved our first phase target of $20,000. This will enable us to kickstart our project with the restoration of 4 key sites. The campaign is just beginning and we are humbled by the huge response from the local community - check out the kind words from our supporters on the crowd-funding site.

The next step is to try to restore more sites - for every $20,000 raised we are able to restore crayweed to another 4 sites along the stretch of 'deforested' Sydney coastline. Don't stop! There's still no better way of demonstrating your love for Sydney's oceans than by buying someone an Underwater Christmas Tree for Christmas this year!
