Helping to Look After the Reef

More drains at Cairns Airport will be sporting an important environmental message after an intensive stencilling session today.

The Cairns Airport team, including Chief Executive Officer, Norris Carter, are joining forces with the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC) for two hours of drain stencilling around the airport’s terminals and car parks today.

A second session will be held in the Saltwater Creek catchment in the Cairns North and Edge Hill areas.

Mr Carter said Cairns Airport is proud to be involved in this environmental initiative.

“The aim is to raise awareness of marine pollution and where it comes from,” Mr Carter said.

“The drain stencils are an excellent reminder to people not to litter because everything that goes into drains ends up in the ocean, and here in Tropical North Queensland that also means the Great Barrier Reef,”

“We are fortunate to live in this beautiful part of the world and the natural attributes we have here, such as the reef, attract millions of visitors each year. This initiative is one of the ways Cairns Airport can contribute to environmental sustainability in our region.”
