Nature Conservation Margaret River Region, in partnership with DBCA, held two volunteer busy bees at Injidup natural spa this winter as the first steps in rehabilitating one of the south west’s most popular “secret” spots. The beloved natural spa is suffering from erosion and vegetation loss, which has increased over the last couple of years due to the area’s growing popularity.
One of the busy bees took place on the 27th of August where 30-40 enthusiastic volunteers teamed up to move a mountain of brush, consolidating pathways and protecting our fragile coastal native vegetation around Wyadup Rocks and the Injidup Natural Spa.
Two hours flew by as we laughed, chatted, built community and cared for nature – with the spectacle of an incredible 5m swell lighting up the coastline while we worked together.
A great collaborative effort between Nature Conservation Margaret River Region and the Yallingup LCDC, the Injidup Residents’ Association and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Thanks also to City of Busselton – Local Government for providing the native brush, Margaret River Hampers for the delicious morning tea, and Line in the Sand for funding our coastal program. Talk about team work!
We couldn’t have the impact we do without such an amazing, supportive and passionate community and volunteer army. So well done!!
