Captain Trash

About The Program

Captain Trash isn’t a real pirate … he’s an unreal pirate! Captain Trash is the alter ego of Port Phillip Baykeeper, Neil Blake (OAM). He educates kids of all ages on the 5 ARRRGHS: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse and Remove. His message is to leave only footprints on the sand … not litter. He’s especially popular with Early Learning and Primary kids, and can be booked for litter audits, shoreline shell surveys, and festivals. Using pirate humour, strumming the ukulele, and rapping funny lyrics, Captain Trash gets kids’ attention. He’s a big character but not so big that he doesn’t have a solid scientific underpinning.

Captain Trash is bookable starting from $250 +GST for incursions and $500 +GST for festivals and events. He’s a popular speaker, especially gifted at giving young kids a solid grounding in sustainability.

Available for Primary Schools, Foundation to Year 6

Bookings open in Term 1, 2022

Your kids can colour him in, sing his song, and figure out ways they can do the 5 Arrrghs.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional custodians of the land on which we are located.

We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other First Nations and Elder members of our multicultural community.
