Professor Mike Ewing is our chair. Mike has been with Cottesloe Coastcare since the beginning and his extensive background in agricultural research has been an important resource in our work using native plants to restore our coastal environment.
“For me it has been very enjoyable to join a group of like-minded people in the task of transforming our coastal sand dunes. Gradually they are changing from an eroding and weedy condition to a stable state that functions ecologically quite like it did in the past. We have demonstrated that the heavy population pressures that we experience in Cottesloe from the diverse array of beach users is not incompatible with a stable and aesthetically pleasing natural coastal landscape, it just takes a lot of effort to get there!”
