'Treasures of our Coast'

Personal actions

Biodiversity brings benefits to every part of our lives and needs our help:

  • Dispose wastes properly from your garden, aquarium, swimming pool and fish pond.
  • Protect wildlife by controlling pets or leaving them at home when you visit the beach.
  • Revegetate cleared area. Choose your garden plants with care. Plant local native trees and shrubs they belong to your soil, climate and wildlife.
