The Drain Stencil Project educates the community that our neighbourhoods are connected to the ocean via the urban storm water drain system. Throwing rubbish in gutters and waterways hurts our Great Barrier Reef, and also increases flood-risk from blocking. By bringing the community together to spray-paint the message "This drains to the Great Barrier Reef" next to our waterways, we create informed advocates for our waters, and leave a physical, long term message behind for the whole community.
