Urban Wildlife Conservation Day

About the Program

You will be helping the Port Phillip EcoCentre and their project partners with litter collections, litter audits and planting native vegetation to help restore biodiversity and protect urban wildlife. 

Helping to remove invasive plant species and planting native vegetation helps combat erosion and creates healthy habitat for local wildlife species.

Your work alongside critical waterways, where the outflow of (sub)urban litter is very obvious will have an important impact on our amazing marine wildlife of Port Phillip Bay. After all, what happens in the ‘burbs’ effects the Bay. 

Data obtained during litter collections will help us track litter and stop it at the source.

“It was a fun and social day! I enjoyed the opportunity to do an outdoor activity that helped the environment, while getting to know colleagues I don't get to talk to regularly.”

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional custodians of the land on which we are located.

We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other First Nations and Elder members of our multicultural community.
