The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) is partnering with the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council, City of Mandurah, Mandurah Cruises, Estuary Guardians, Murdoch University, Coastal Waste Warriors and other community groups on the 25th of October to deliver the second annual Luca’s Legacy clean-up event in Mandurah.
In 2019 we ran the inaugural clean up event in Mandurah to commemorate the death of Luca, a resident dolphin in the Peel-Harvey Estuary that died from fishing line entanglement.
Unfortunately, discarded fishing line and other litter is still killing dolphins, seabirds and other wildlife. There are currently two dolphins in the Peel-Harvey Estuary suffering from fishing line entanglement – an adult female named River, and a calf named Brave.
Come and join the Mandurah community as we attempt to better last year’s efforts when almost 200 people volunteered their time and helped collect and remove over 700kgs of litter!
Whether you live in Mandurah, Dawesville or anywhere in between, we have set up two Home Bases so that it’s easy for you to get involved.
This project is supported by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program
