Working in partnership with the community to protect and preserve the natural environment of the Margaret River region.
Nature Conservation Margaret River Region Inc. is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation established in 2002 that works in partnership with the community to protect and preserve the natural environment of the Margaret River region known locally as Nature Conservation.
This environmental organisation combines the grassroots power of the regional community with sound conservation science and pragmatic policy initiatives to achieve effective and sustainable environmental outcomes.
Nature Conservation has a clear vision for the Margaret River region - A healthy and biodiverse natural environment supporting the livelihoods and lifestyles on which our community depends.
The organisation has a volunteer Board of Management and a small part time staff who deliver conservation action through six key conservation programs. Addressing the key challenges facing the environment in the Margaret River region, the conservation programs take a long term strategic approach and through coordinated concerted action aim to maintain the health, biodiversity and naturalness of the environment of the Margaret River region.
Nature Conservation’s Programs are as follows:
• Conserving the Margaret River
• Coordinated Weed Control
• Managing Bushland for Wildlife
• Threatened Species Protection
• Caring for Coast
• ‘Our Patch’ Environmental Education.
An additional ‘People for Nature’ Program cuts across the conservation programs to raise awareness and increase engagement in conservation in all sectors of the community.
