Coastcare Week Group Stories
The Friends of Lord Howe Island (TFLHI) was set up in 2001 following concerns about weeds on the island that had resulted from a lack of resources from the Lord Howe Island Board to tackle the issue. The group consists of holiday makers with a difference, who pay to holiday on Lord Howe Island whilst removing weeds and exploring the islands biodiversity. The group is led by Ian Hutton, a naturalist, who has lived on Lord Howe Island for over 40 years.
Introducing the Cottesloe Coastcarers! Founded in 1995, The Cottesloe Coastcare Association (CCA) in response to concerns about eroded dunes in their town and the need for revegetation.
In collaboration with the Town of Cottesloe and guided by a Natural Areas Management Plan, CCA receives support from government and corporate groups through grants and volunteer labour. They maintain a year-round program actively involving local schools.
Kingston Beach Coastcare was founded in 2000 to address a growing weed invasion. The group has been busy ever since its inception, driven by dedicated community members and the support of Kingborough Council staff and Landcare Tasmania. The group meets monthly to take care of the local environment and surrounds.
The Casuarina Coastal Reserve Landcare Group operates on Larrakia Country near Darwin. Managed by NT Parks and Wildlife, the group engages in planting, extensive weed control, watering, and fuel reduction efforts to protect the plants.
The Reserve is favoured among locals, attracts thousands of interstate and overseas visitors who come for sunsets, the bush, and the wildlife. Notably, sea turtles nest on the beach, just hundreds of meters away from one of the group’s revegetation sites. The Landcare Group concentrates its efforts on two distinct sites, one situated near the mangroves and monsoon forest, and the other located in the dunes by Darwin Harbour.
The Warrnambool Coastcare Landcare Network in Victoria was established in 1995. The main focus areas include urban and rural revegetation on public and private land, monitoring and conserving coastal and hinterland biodiversity, community education on local fauna and flora, supporting the startup and development of new natural environment groups, building a broad network and advocating for better natural environment policy and actions.
Warrnambool Coastcare Landcare Network monitors little penguins and other seabirds as part of the ‘Middle Island Project’ and with support from a Coastcare Victoria Community Grant, this year focused on environmental education and raising awareness in the community.
