Kayaking for the environment

CLIMATE change was the topic of discussion as kayaker Steve Posselt paddled into Coffs Harbour on his Climate Emergency Campaign last weekend.

Coffs Harbour welcomed the kayaker with half a dozen children and adults paddling out on their kayaks to meet him in the harbour before coming ashore and talking about his journey and mission at the Jetty beach.

The kayaker launched at Ballina, collecting 100,000 signatures on his way to deliver a national petition to Canberra calling for the declaration of a climate emergency.

Coffs Coast Climate Action Group support his campaign and made sure he stopped at Coffs when they heard he was doing the journey.
