Sustainability

Hervey Bay benefits from excellent management of the ocean environment and supports and enhances sustainability initiatives and other activities that benefit the environment and wildlife.

Annual beach clean-ups highlight ocean pollution and encourage people to adopt sustainable practices to preserve the environment. The clean-up activities also draw media coverage, helping to broadcast the message to the Fraser Coast community.

The site is setting up a community-based action group, led by a prominent academic, to engage a range of stakeholders in monitoring environmental issues across the whole of the Great Sandy Marine Park. This group will be an important advocate for sustainable oceans and shorelines, in consultation with regulatory authorities.
