  • Adopt A Beach

    Perth NRM’s Adopt A Beach Program offers fun, hands-on, and curriculum-linked activities that help students conserve and learn about the marine and coastal environment. Adopt A Beach delivers a wide range of incursions and excursions suitable for all primary and secondary students in the Perth metro area.

    From beach clean ups to coastal erosion case studies, there is something for every class.

    By participating in the Adopt A Beach Program, students can:

    • learn about the importance of coastal and marine ecosystems
    • learn about sustainability issues and solutions relating to ocean plastic pollution, beach erosion, population pressures and climate change
    • restore the coast and create habitat through dune care activities like planting native seedlings and weeding invasive species.

    City of Rockingham schools can access this program for free in 2024/2025, as part of the City's partnership with Perth NRM.
