Sydney, Australia, is a global city, blessed to still have areas of remnant natural bushland scattered throughout its suburbs. When Captain Cook first sailed into Botany Bay in 1770, the biodiversity would have been spectacular and even to this day there is a far greater diversity of plant species within the city boundaries than exist in the entire United Kingdom. Some incredible wildlife still occurs here too. The problem is that bushland areas are extremely sensitive to invasive weeds and can ...

The Clifton Springs Curlewis area is a hidden gem in Geelong, filled with stunning waters, sandy beaches and iconic views. To protect all this beauty, a new Coastcare Group has formed to conserve the values of this section of coastline for future generations. The Clifton Springs Curlewis Coastcare Group held first meeting during December 2019 and elected an interim volunteer committee of management.

Over 2000 Coastcare groups currently exist in Australia with the aim to protect and conserve their local coastlines. After receiving feedback from the local community in Clifton Springs and Curlewis, the Bellarine Catchment Network started the process of formalising the new Coastcare group through the provision of support, co facilitation and resources. 

Elise Snell, Coastcare Facilitator for the Bellarine Surf Coast, recognises the importance of this new group for the Bellarine: “It is exciting to have this new group establishing as this year we are celebrating 25 years of Coastcare. Volunteers play an important role in caring for our coasts and marine environments for current and future generations to enjoy. By becoming a volunteer, you can be engaged in a variety of activities, from weeding and revegetation, citizen science, coastal education and engagement activities. Joining a Coastcare group is a great way to get outside, spend time in your local environment and give back to your community.”
