Nature Conservation

Margaret River Region

Together with Nature

Connect – Respect – Act

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the country where we work – the Wadandi or Saltwater People – and recognise their continuing connection to land, water, sea and culture. We pay our respects to elders past and present.

We’re committed to providing advocacy and leadership on local environmental issues, developments and other nature and biodiversity impacts in our local community and region.

As well as our education programs, wide-ranging environmental initiatives, conservation advocacy and advice, we’ve added a Bush Regeneration Team which can be hired for contract work on private property.

We have highy skilled and trained Biodiversity Officers who can be hired to carry out a biodiversity assessment and plan for your place, helping you maintain or build on the environmental values of your property.

Upcoming Events

Take action

There are many ways to be involved in nature conservation and caring for our environment.

‘Getting involved’ can be through the actions we take in our garden or on our property; by becoming a volunteer or citizen scientist, or joining a Friends group.

It can simply be through an awareness and enthusiasm for our local area; reporting what you see and having a curiosity to learn more.

On Your Property

Wildlife needs space and places to live. Gardens and properties can support the local wildlife by providing areas to shelter, nest and feed in. As different types of wildlife have different needs, the more diverse a garden or property the more species it will support.

In your environment

Much of our wildlife (fauna) is dependent on our native vegetation (flora). The Margaret River region has a high diversity of flora and fauna and we live in what is known as a biodiversity hotspot.

Become a member


Support the work of Nature Conservation by becoming a Member. Paid-up members do much more than just help keep the lights on; they are an important measure of the organisation’s credibility.


Your time is one of the greatest gifts you can give to the Margaret River region environment. Volunteering for Nature Conservation provides an opportunity to repay nature for some of the enjoyment you derive from it. There are also other unexpected benefits. Volunteers often get just as much from volunteering as the cause they serve.
