Port Botany Foreshore Restoration

14 March @ 9:00 am - 23 April @ 2:00 pm AEDT

Port Botany Foreshore Restoration

In conjunction with Bayside Council and NSW Ports, we are undertaking the restoration of Sir Joseph Banks Park, a haven for nature enthusiasts along the Botany Foreshore.

This area serves as a crucial urban sanctuary for rarely observed native flora and fauna, as well as the wider community!

Historically, the park has faced significant environmental degradation, so we are here to give it a helping hand. The tasks ahead are diverse and may include:

  • removing weeds
  • planting native species
  • constructing nest boxes
  • litter collection
  • and wildlife monitoring.

Proudly supported by NSW Ports.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to become a hero!

A call to action for Ocean, Wetlands & Rivers

The future of Australia’s ocean, wetlands and rivers is in our hands. At CVA, we create opportunities for anyone, anywhere, to take practical actions and Sea The Change!

Over the next 5 years, we are committing to: 

  • Activating a community of people to remove 30 tonnes of rubbish from entering the environment.
  • Continue to work with CSIRO to expand their National Plastic Pollution Baseline Survey across the country.
  • Improve biodiversity, climate resilience, blue carbon storage potential, and habitat for our hero species on 14 wetlands in 6 capital cities and 3 regional centres.
  • Working alongside and supporting 80 community “care” and First Nations groups to catalyse action for ocean, wetlands and rivers.
