Getting involved with Coastcare

Did you enjoy learning about our amazing coast? Do you want to help keeping it beautiful and healthy? Do you want to meet like-minded people in your area?

Then joining one of the many Coastcare groups dotted all along the Victorian coastline might just be the thing for you!!!

Hundreds of groups work together to look after our coastline. Be it through collecting rubbish, weeding, planting new habitat or protecting shore birds like the Hooded Plover, there are many ways you could help. All groups are always happy for an extra set of hands – and there are jobs for all ages and abilities!

So don’t be shy, give your Regional Coastcare Facilitator a bell and they will put you in touch with groups in your area.
