The Margaret River branch was originally formed over a decade ago but has been running in its current form since 2008.
This branch has been involved in two big wins over the last few years. We stongly supported the "No oil for SW beaches" campaign in which we lobbied against the granting of oil leases off of the Margaret River coast.
The group is focused on several issues including:
Campaigning for our local Marine Parks
Campaigning for a WA Cash for Containers Deposit Scheme
Implementing dune restoration programs
Beach clean up and marine debris/ plastic awareness
From heading to King Island in Tasmania opposing a proposed Salmon Farm just around from Martha Lavinia, to picking up tonnes of left over waste in the national park surrounding Double Island Point as a result of overuse, to standing on the beach in South Newcastle where a skate bowl is proposed to be built...on the beach!
