Then Liberal candidate for Stirling, Vince Connelly, announced during the election that a re-elected Morrison Government would support local environmental group, Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare (SNEC), to continue to protect, promote, and care for Stirling’s unique coastline.
An investment of $20,000 will help the group to purchase new signage and commence other essential initiatives to promote sustainable use of the natural environment.
SNEC undertakes community based coastal restoration and rehabilitation within the City of Stirling and works with locals to ensure that the coastline is preserved for residents and visitors to enjoy.
The group works collaboratively with many environmental organisations, and local government, to promote the protection of natural biodiversity and animal habitats.
Mr Connelly said he is proud to work with local environmental organisations to ensure that Stirling’s coastal beauty is preserved for generations to come.
“Community organisations such as SNEC are essential, as they engage residents and local government, and proactively work on the ground to ensure our unique coastal environment is preserved,” Mr Connelly said.
“As a lover of our magnificent coastline, and a keen surfer, environmental conservation projects such as those carried out by SNEC ensure that we can continue to use our beaches, and enjoy our natural community.”
WA Liberal Senator Linda Reynolds said the Morrison Government is committed to protecting and caring for Australia’s vast coastline.
“Here in WA, we are lucky enough to have beautiful beaches right along the coastline, but as a community, we must ensure they are looked after,” Senator Reynolds said.
“That is why the Morrison Government is investing in initiatives right across Australia to ensure our unique coastal environment is preserved.
“We are only able to invest in these environmental protection measures due to our strong economic management, which will ensure our beautiful coastline here in WA is preserved into the future.”
