Waterways are the arteries of the Earth.
Plastic pollution is clogging waterways, endangering wildlife, the climate, and our way of life. Neil Blake OAM (Port Phillip Baykeeper) and Fam Charko (EcoCentre Marine Biologist) work tirelessly to understand the growing problem of plastic in the Port Phillip Bay, and how it impacts wildlife like St Kilda's population of little penguin.

At the EcoCentre, our venue is the perfect spot if you're looking to host a Zero-Waste birthday party! Our Zero Waste philosophy includes 'Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Remove'.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
