Coastcare funding for Mullaloo and Ocean Reef community groups

TWO northern suburbs coastal projects have received State Government funding.

Planning Minister Donna Faragher was at Mullaloo Beach last Tuesday to announce the Mullaloo Beach Community Group would receive $21,300 for its Mullaloo Coastcare 2017 project.

This will include weeding, dune restoration and beach clean-ups to protect the Quindalup dunes at Mullaloo, part of Bush Forever site 325.

“The Mullaloo Beach Community Group in conjunction with the City of Joondalup have done an amazing job in caring for and appreciating coastal biodiversity,” Joondalup MLA Jan Norberger said.

“It is always encouraging to see such a dedicated and passionate group of local volunteers working together to make a difference in our community”.

The Friends of North Ocean Reef – Iluka Foreshore will receive $20,828 for restoration works at Bush Forever site 325.
