Association News

We have just released the latest edition of the Coolum & North Shore Coast Care newsletter. This issue contains updates on events, activities and observations by our volunteers during their work on our Coast. We hope you enjoy this Spring Edition, which will also be posted shortly on our Website and a link to our Facebook page as well.

You may notice that our newsletter has a new look. While this may not be the ‘definitive’ look, it is a glimpse into designs to come. We hope that you like the results and please let us know what you think. If there are any features, feedback (positive and/or constructive) or suggestions on things in the newsletter or things you would like to see, please send your comments to info@coolumcoastcare.org.au.

And as always, please feel free to send in contributions for our next Newsletter. The next edition will be our Summer Edition coming out in December. Submissions for content are due by the 01 December. If you have attended a Coast Care event or relevant environmental function, have a great picture or story of the Coast, or have musings or something else to share, send them in to us at info@coolumcoastcare.org.au and you might see your article in our next edition!

Enjoy!

Recovery Plan for Marine Turtles in Australia

In case you missed it, there is a new Recovery Plan for Marine Turtles 2017 , published on the Commonwealth Government’s website.

The 2017 – 2027 Recovery Plan for Marine Turtles in Australia identifies actions that are required to recover the seven species of marine turtle found in Australian waters.

Among these species, the endangered Loggerhead Turtle nesting habitat between Double Island Point and Pumicestone Passage has been identified as critical to the survival of this species. This is an important listing for our local beaches and recognises the great work that all the volunteers do in collecting scientific data on marine turtles along our Sunshine Coast coastline. This plan recognises the importance of our beaches as nesting grounds for the Loggerhead Turtle.

During NAIDOC Week on Friday 7th, an official launch will be held of the digital booklet titled:

“THE PANDANUS: HISTORIC OCCURRENCE AND ABORIGINAL USES:
MORETON TO WIDE BAY DISTRICTS”

A stunning coastal icon of our headlands and dunes, the Pandanus tree has been the focus of a project to celebrate its cultural significance and to support its conservation in our region. Unitywater’s Community Sponsorship Program has funded this initiative enabling Coolum & North Shore Coast Care to work with KabiKabi Traditional Owners, historian Dr Ray Kerkhove and Pandanus dieback mitigation expert, Joel Fostin.
