PHCC Releases Pinjarra Clean Up Australia Video

Every year, Clean Up Australia‬ events encourage and inspire local people to help clean up their community spaces.

This ‪video‬ shot at the ‪Pinjarra‬ Clean Up Australia Day demonstrates how members of our local community were willing to come together to do something to help protect and care for the area that they live and work in.

While the site in this video has recorded improvements, across Peel Waterways the amount of rubbish picked up each year is increasing dramatically. Great work, everyone!

S.H.A.R.E Feral Animal Control

Feral animals are the single biggest threat to Australia’s native animals and feral cats alone are already implicated in the extinction of more than 20 Australian mammals. On Thursday 19 May 2016 the PHCC through its S.H.A.R.E (Social, Help, Action and Resources for the environment) series, presented an informative session for our community on Feral Animal Control.

Home River Ocean TV Commercials

The Home River Ocean campaign is an initiative of the South West Catchments Council (SWCC) and is a collaborative partnership with the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council and others.

Peel-Harvey garden lovers are being urged to create crab friendly lawns in the ongoing ‘Save the Crabs, Then Eat Them’ campaign – the overarching message of the Home River Ocean campaign which encourages residents to think about how and when they fertilise their lawns – for the sake of our waterways and crabs.
