Our Mission

Since 2002 Nature Conservation has worked to design and develop effective and sustainable solutions to key environmental challenges facing the Margaret River region, south-west Australia. Formerly known as the Cape to Cape Catchments Group, the organisation leverages the strength of the regional community by raising awareness, inspiring commitment and empowering action on behalf of the environment. It does this by combining grassroots community support with sound conservation science and pragmatic policy initiatives.

Nature Conservation is committed to community consultation, collaborative partnerships and an apolitical, results-oriented approach to conservation. It encourages and facilitates community engagement in caring for terrestrial, aquatic and coastal ecosystems essential to the health and resilience of the Margaret River region environment.

You can help

Nature Conservation depends on the generosity of people like you to assist with our work in protecting the Margaret River region environment. Your support is greatly appreciated. We take seriously our responsibility to spend your tax-deductible donation wisely.

To earn and retain your trust we have developed policies and procedures to ensure all our processes have high standards of transparency, integrity and accountability. Our donation process is designed to ensure all personal and financial information is kept safe and secure.



Your time is one of the greatest gifts you can give to the Margaret River region environment. Volunteering for Nature Conservation provides an opportunity to repay nature for some of the enjoyment you derive from it. There are also other unexpected benefits. Volunteers often get just as much from volunteering as the cause they serve.

We have interesting, rewarding opportunities for volunteers to contribute to on ground conservation field activities and participate in citizen science programs. If you are not interested in outdoor activities we also require volunteers to help out in our office assisting with member support, helping coordinate our programs, undertaking data management and helping out with events.
