A letter from William

William Parkinson wrote the letter (below) to the Post newspaper. CCA volunteers spend lots of time picking up rubbish, which has often been carelessly discarded with no thought to the problems caused to the environment and to marine life. We love our coast too and encourage everyone to take care of it!

And the ospreys came too….

45 people and 4 ospreys joined us for our Heritage Walk at Mudurup Rocks on Saturday April 20th.

The fishing line menace

It’s holiday time and (sustainable) fishing is part of holiday fun. But please remember a few important points when you are fishing. Our wildlife, in the water and in the air are killed, inadvertently, in large numbers each year, by people fishing.

Congratulations from Sir David!

Today Cottesloe Coastcare received another lovely letter from Sir David Attenborough!!

Weedy Seadragon campaign

It has been almost 18 months since Weedy Seadragons started taking up lots of my time. It has been an interesting, often frustrating but very worthwhile campaign…. and it is not over yet!
