Perth NRM Regional Coastal Strategy 2021 – 2026

The Perth metropolitan coastal zone is a landscape connecting systems of sand dunes, heath lands, bushlands and wetlands. These fragile ecosystems support a diverse range of plants, animals and birds and is vulnerable to many competing pressures. Our coastal zone  encompasses a community of active volunteers who contribute time and effort to address the environmental challenges faced along our coast.

Perth NRM’s Coastal Strategy 2021-2026 is consistent with the roles and responsibilities of Natural Resource Management (NRM) groups as outlined in the State Government’s WA Coastal Zone Strategy and aligns closely with Perth NRM’s broader strategic objectives regarding land management and community engagement.Cover of the PNRM Regional Coastal Strategy 2021 - 2026Perth NRM Regional Coastal Strategy 2021-2026
