Turners Beach Coastcare Incorporated – TAS
The Turners Beach Coastcare Group (TBC) undertakes sustainable practices to restore damage caused by land clearing and storms. The Group’s weed control and revegetation efforts protect waterways and wetlands, reflecting the important role that coastal vegetation plays in maintaining the integrity of the dunes and river mouth. The Group’s work in propping up eroding foredunes and strengthening slumping riverbanks has enabled it to adopt a position of leadership in the community. Council plans for residential amenities are reviewed by TBC in a consultative role, and management plans now prioritise conservation, protecting trees and coastal bush. While much of the surrounding coast has been developed, the Turners Beach coastal zone has been protected.
