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
Australia’s newest waves in danger are at YAMBA, ‘THE FARM’ & GOOLAWAH. At a quick glance around the country.., The Great Australian Bight is one step closer to risky drilling, Stockton Beach is literally disappearing before our eyes, an ominous stillness in the waters around Martha Lavinia & an indicative design released for the South Newcastle Beach skate park. Amongst these and other important fights, stand up for your wave with Surfrider.
