Whether you are looking to start your own Coastcare group to protect and manage your local coastal or marine environment, or need help promoting your group’s activities, we have created a few resources to help you get started.
Starting your own Coastcare Group
If you want to make a hands-on difference to your community but can’t find a Coastcare group to join in your area, or one that suits your passion for a particular type of project, you can start a group of your own and encourage your local community to get involved and volunteer.
Get started with our New Group Starter Kit This step-by-step guide is easy to use and packed with useful information about getting other volunteers on-board, setting up your committee, how to register your group, tips to apply for funding, managing your grant money and more. The kit is a general guide to help you get started.
Promoting your Coastcare Group’s Activities
Looking professional and sending a clear message is very important when you organise your event or promotion, especially when you would like volunteers or local business to get involved. Landcare Australia has developed free group resources to help you with this including; editable templates where you can change the titles, field names and insert your own logo (where the space is provided).
Occasionally there are templates developed specifically for promoting national campaigns like Coastcare Week, but for a local event, you are welcome to use the templates and resources we’ve listed below, we will continue to add more.
Using the Coastcare Logo
There are rules that govern the use of the Coastcare logo to ensure that the brand is protected for the benefit of all. Landcare Australia owns and manages the trademark and the use of the Landcare Australia, Landcare, Coastcare and Junior Landcare brands. Landcare Australia’s brands and logos are easily recognised and have a high reputation to uphold. As such, Landcare Australia restricts the use of the logo.
As a Coastcare group you can request your own Coastcare group logo incorporating your group name. To obtain please register your group on the National Landcare Directory. If you get approval from Landcare Australia to use the Coastcare logo, make sure you follow the logo style guide.
All enqueries regarding the use of the Coastcare logo should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
