Coastcare Week (December 5 – 11) is an opportunity for local groups and volunteers to celebrate and promote the work they are doing throughout the year to care for our coasts and marine environments, and encourage people to get involved.
Coastcare community volunteer groups are made up of everyday Australians who care passionately about the protection and management of our coastal and marine environments.
Coastcare is, in many ways, an extension of the Landcare movement focusing on the coast.
Thousands of volunteers from across the country form more than 500 Coastcare groups and, alongside their Landcare peers, put into action long-term, practical solutions for environmental issues in their local area.
Coastcarers tackle problems like:
– dune protection
– protection of endangered coastal habitats
– collection and prevention of storm water pollution and physical debris
– weed and non-native plant removal
– control of human access to sensitive and vulnerable areas
– education programs for the broader public
