Urban Wildlife Conservation day

You will be helping the Port Phillip EcoCentre and their project partner Friends of Westgate Park with litter collections, litter audits and planting of native vegetation in Westgate Park. We will be working on the banks of the Yarra near the Westgate Bridge, where the outflow of (sub)urban litter is very obvious. After all, what happens in the ‘burbs, impacts on the Bay and our amazing Port Phillip Bay marine wildlife, which is too precious to lose. We will also be helping to restore Westgate Park for urban wildlife by planting native vegetation, which helps combat erosion and creates healthy habitat for local wildlife species.

Litter data will help us track litter and stop it at the source. The activity includes a wildlife wander through Westgate Park.
