Protect Perth’s Wetlands this Summer

16 January @ 7:55 am - 27 February @ 2:00 pm AWST

Protect Perth’s Wetlands throughout Summer

There is no doubt that this summer is a hot one with increased heat stress on our ocean, wetlands, and rivers. Naturally we want to help!

Join likeminded individuals passionate about making a positive impact for our local communities and environment. Protect against plastic pollution in our post public holiday beach clean-up while collating important data for the CSIRO.

Bring yourself down to a ‘Bibra Lake Bush Regen for Biodiversity’ or ‘Foster Forestdale Lakes Future’ intensive where we fight against invasive species in preparation for our winter planting season.

  • Learn about invasive and native plants that grow in and around our wetlands
  • Participate in a flora or fauna survey to map out the health of these ecosystems
  • Learn about conservation and land management strategies and much more.
  • Participate is our wetland discovery workshop suitable for the whole family where we will learn about tiny macro invertebrates and wetland ecology with an artistic flare.

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.
