Beach Monitoring Project
Beach monitoting is a major project for the Port Fairy Coastal Group. The monitoring provides detailed information to Moyne Shire Council and State Governement Agencies for use in developing a response to erosion and predicted rises in sea level.
Every month we use a surveyors level to accurately measure beach profiles along 4km of East Beach, which illustrates what will happen if erosion and sea level rise go unchecked. We seek the community’s responses to questions about priorities and treating the problem.
involving the community to manage
the Moyne River estuary and our coastline
We are involved in projects ranging from measuring erosion, educating the community, taking feedback and working with the local council and government bodies to consider action.
Our collection of photographs reflect the diversity of views of our esturary and coastline.
This is a collection in progress.
