Coastal

The Cape to Cape region encompasses over 120 km of stunning coastline, most of which lies within the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. Limestone and granite cliffs are interspersed with sandy bays and steep sand dunes between rocky headlands.

The warm tropical Leeuwin current flows south from Indonesia and influences the marine flora and fauna, with a high degree of unique and diverse species. Their habitats range from granite and limestone reefs to sheltered bays and rock pools.

Migrating humpbacks and southern right whales frequent our coastline, along with populations of resident bottlenose dolphins.

The CCG works alongside local resident associations to protect the fragile coastal environment. The coastline is particularly vulnerable to increasing human traffic which causes erosion and vegetation loss.

The CCG Conservation Volunteer Team has recently finished a 6 month coastal project with activities ranging from weed control and revegetation, to track clearing and possum monitoring.
