Mornington Peninsula Shire
Thank you to the Mornington Peninsula Shire for allowing us to run Melbourne Coastrek!
Thank you to Yarra Council for supporting Melbourne Coastrek. The City of Yarra is an inner metropolitan municipality which is home to a diverse community of about 80,600 people. The new municipality merged the former councils of Collingwood, Richmond, Fitzroy (including North Carlton), and Northcote (Alphington and Fairfield, south of Heidelberg Road only.)
Parks and nature are an important part of improving and maintaining health, both for individuals and the community. Parks Victoria has a clear role to play in connecting people and communities with parks in Victoria. Their 'Healthy Parks | Healthy People' initiative seeks to reinforce and encourage the connections between a healthy environment and a healthy society.
Coastrek aims to help raise awareness of the Mornington Peninsula's coastal habitats and the unique and threatened wildlife dependent on these. The Peninsula holds a large proportion of the endangered species of birdlife called the Hooded Plover. The Hooded Plover survival relies on awareness as they can not breed successfully without undisturbed space. Coastrek will communicate how we can help!
