Perth NRM has received Coastwest funding to activate the Kwinana-Rockingham Coastcare community. The City of Kwinana hosts a Perth NRM representative and this new funding will significantly increase the capacity to support the local community in its efforts to improve the condition of the local coastline
The Activating the Kwinana-Rockingham Coastcare Community project will engage and support four emerging Coastcare groups to deliver a series of coastal conservation events aimed at attracting local community volunteers, building knowledge and awareness around coastal threats and management, and delivering positive on-ground outcomes for identified project sites. Activities include manual weed management, planting, marine debris collection and a targeted education event. The grant will also cover workshops including beach combing sessions, planting events with local coastcare groups, beach cleans, bird walk and talks and more.
