Advocacy

Nature Conservation has a strong commitment to providing advocacy and leadership on local environmental issues. 

Calling for world-class management of the Margaret River Region

We draw upon our strong science base and local experience and knowledge to call for and advocate for world-class management of our unique local environment. Timely and considered contributions to planning, policy and decision-making processes and discussions are an important and effective component of our work. 

It also compliments our other roles and programs on environmental education, community and landholder support, strategic planning and management, and on-ground conservation work. And strong advocacy is absolutely necessary given the many pressures on our region.
