Summary Information:
Coastcare is a national environment program that provides opportunities for the community, Indigenous groups, the business sector and governments to become actively involved in the protection and management of Australia's coastal and marine environments. Coastcare funding supports a wide range of community projects such as: dune revegetation; beach access and boardwalk construction; weed control; reef and marine species monitoring; coastal habitat protection and community education. Coastcare is being expanded to incorporate a wider range of marine and coastal activities. This will include protecting migratory shorebirds and threatened marine species; establishing and managing marine protected areas; and improving the condition of coastal, estuarine and marine resources.
