Restoring Connewarre’s Climate Resilience

Embark on a mission with us to safeguard the pristine aquatic landscapes surrounding Lake Connewarre and beyond. As stewards of these vital ecosystems, we’re committed to restoring and preserving the health and balance of our coastal habitats in the face of climate change.

Our initiative, “Resilient Wetlands,” focuses on 10 priority wetlands across Australia, including those near Lake Connewarre. Working closely with Traditional Owners, local communities, and collaborators, we’re dedicated to revitalising these critical environments.

We invite you to take part in hands-on activities such as litter clean-ups, invasive species weeding, and educational workshops. By actively engaging in these efforts, you’ll play a crucial role in preserving the vitality of Bellarine’s coastal ecosystems. Our focus extends beyond preservation — we aim to revive and sustain these habitats, ensuring their resilience to the challenges posed by a changing climate.

Throughout our initiative, we’ll explore different waterway terrains. Each landscape presents unique challenges and opportunities, contributing to our overarching goal of preserving the interconnectedness of our aquatic environments. By delving deeper into these landscapes, we gain a greater understanding of their importance and the role they play in climate resilience.

Join us today to experience the beauty of our wetlands and be a part of this vital mission. Together, let’s protect and restore wetlands to ensure clean air, fresh water, and safe futures for generations to come.
