Waves of Change in Rockdale

CVA is seeking your help to take action for Ocean, Rivers and Wetlands! Get ready to roll up your sleeves, lend a hand to nature and enhance your well-being by joining this meaningful initiative that creates a true impact.

Participate in hands-on bush regeneration, a crucial step towards protecting the endangered species present within our focus area: The Rockdale Wetlands Corridor, home to 7 endangered ecological communities and 28 threatened/migratory fauna species.

  • Help us fight plastic pollution and stop litter at the source by cleaning up these precious ecosystems whilst collecting crucial data for the CSIRO
  • Forge connections with like-minded individuals eager to make a positive impact
  • Revel in a day surrounded by the tranquility of nature, right in the heart of our city. 🌿🌊

The health of our wetlands affects the state of our rivers and in turn the world’s ocean, so let’s work together to safeguard these vital ecosystems!🌊🌿

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.
