LISTING DETAILS
Coolum District Coast Care Group, Inc.
“Conservation in Action”
 
 
Coolum’s unique location marks the mix of southern and northern marine ocean currents, the limestone and volcanic mountain plugs, magnificent dunes and wallum foreshores creating habitats for Australian birds, butterflies, kangaroos as well as a playground for the revival and refreshment of visitors and local people..
 
Coolum District Coast Care Group, established in 1997, now trades as Coolum and North Shore Coast Care (CaNSCC) to acknowledge its expanded area of operations. CaNSCC has gained widespread recognition for its enhancement of the unique coastal environment from Stumers Creek just north of Coolum south to Twin Waters on the north shore of the Maroochy River. Visit our website www.coolumcoastcare.org.au and become a member to support our work. Our aim is to encourage preservation of the area’s unique biological diversity.
 
Networking with a variety of local and national environmental groups strengthens our activities. Through a range of practical activities, environmental awareness, education and advocacy, members (either through participation or supportive endorsement) have rescued native plants, saved unique native heathlands or wallum, weeded out feral plants from Municipal and National Parks, monitored sea turtles, restored dunes, planted trees, provided talks to schools, surveyed rocky foreshores, provided support for ailing pandanus plants, establish the Coolum Community Native Nursery.
 

 Wherever possible we work in partnership with individuals, community groups, government agencies and private enterprise for the best possible environmental outcomes. Its estimated that Coolum Coast Care’s labour contribution is equal to over $180,000.00 per year. Other highlights include: a native plant publication which has been reprinted three times; 100,000 native seedlings are sold from the not-for-profit native nursery; turtle and marine debris monitoring provide information to researchers and and several development projects have been modified to be more consistent with the Coolum landscape and lifestyle.
