Caring for Coast
The coastline of the Margaret River region is deservedly famous for its outstanding natural beauty. The long beaches, sheltered bays, good fishing, numerous surf breaks and dramatic coastal cliffs provide a broad range of recreational opportunities highly valued by both visitors and locals.
Increasing use of the coast by growing resident and tourist populations together with other threats associated with climate change are placing significant pressures on the fragile coastal region.
Nature Conservation is one of several organisations working collaboratively to ensure the region’s coastal ecosystems are managed according to the best practice and with its partners supports established volunteer coastcare groups with a range of coastal restoration projects.
