Coastcare Victoria is celebrating 25 years of supporting thousands of volunteers in protecting and enhancing Victoria’s 2,000 kilometres of coastline.

The Victorian Government first launched the Coastcare Victoria program in 1994, making Victoria the first state in Australia to formally support its coastal volunteers.

Today, a network of more than 2,200 volunteers are the powerhouse of Coastcare Victoria and these volunteers use their local environmental knowledge to plan and deliver projects.

Several events are taking place across the state, celebrating the milestone with volunteers and reflecting on local achievements.

By looking after precious coastal assets, Coastcare Victoria volunteers are also protecting more than 12,000 plant and animal species within diverse ecosystems along the state’s coastline. Many of these species are not found anywhere else in the word.

Coastcare and volunteers also deliver the high-profile education program Summer by the Sea, which offers hundreds of free activities every January, giving thousands of participants the chance to explore and learn about Victoria’s unique coastal and marine environments.
