Funds raised for Coastcare will go towards coastal and environmental work in coastal areas in the vicinity of Port to Pub.
Swim for the future of our turtles
This March, swim for the future of our marine life and turtles by supporting Coastcare.
The first 10 people to raise $200 each will win a Rottnest Express double pass to visit the beautiful Rottnest Island valued at $170 (valid for 12 months).
Turtles have existed for over 100 million years, and travelled through many oceans. But sadly, many of our turtle populations in Western Australia are struggling to survive.
Why? A number of factors have contributed, such as capture by feral animals, destruction of nesting beaches by humans, ocean pollution, oil spills, and erosion of dunes and beaches where turtles lay their eggs.
But you can do something to help! This March, swim for the future of our marine life and turtles by supporting Coastcare.
The 13,500 kilometres of WA’s coastline is home to some of the world’s most remarkable ecosystems and marine wildlife – including many threatened species of sea turtles.
Six of the world’s seven species reside in these waters, including the flatback turtle. Found only in the waters around Australia, there are only 20,000 nesting female turtles left!
A number of Coastcare groups in Western Australia dedicate themselves in working to care and protect these areas so that our marine life, like the flatback turtle, has a place to ensure their eggs and environments are safe.
Protecting our coastal and marine environment is just as important as protecting our land.
Coastcare puts into action long-term, practical solutions that help protect and improve our beautiful coastlines and fragile ocean environments.
Young and old, a number of volunteer Coastcarers tackle problems like; dune erosion, loss of native coastal vegetation and animals, storm water pollution, invasive weeds, and control of human access to sensitive and vulnerable areas.
