NACC’s new Coastal & Marine Trailer to be launched at Point Moore

One of the interactive displays on coastal erosion that you can expect to see at the Coastal Community Engagement Trailer Launch!

Do you love the beaches and want to learn more about them in a fun and engaging way? Join NACC’s Coastal and Marine team at Point Moore next week for the launch of our brand new, super fun, Coastal Community Engagement Trailer.

The trailer will be on show for the community to enjoy for the first time – as part of Point Moore’s Lighthouse Open Day on Sunday 22 August from 10:30am.

The trailer is the end result of NACC Coastal and Marine Coordinator Mic Payne’s famous pitch at last year’s Goodness Festival GeroSoup event – that initiated the donation of the trailer from the Department of Fisheries and also provided the essential funds to turn it into a purpose-built trailer containing displays and resource material for promoting coastal and marine conservation.

The trailer is now fully decked-out with a new paint job, solar power panels, BBQ, TV and interpretive displays – all designed to help the wider community better understand coastal ecology and processes, traditional ecological knowledge, and associated management issues that face our coastline.

NACC Coastal and Marine Project Officer Vanessa McGuiness said “We have been looking forward to the launch of the Coastal Community Engagement Trailer for some time now.”

“It is now ready to go cross country to coastal events all around the region and will help us engage our community in coastal and marine conservation in an exciting and interactive way,” she said.

NACC will also be running a free guided beach walk on the same day, at 12.30pm, which will be suited for the whole family. Join us for the walk, and find-out more about the coastal native plants, marine debris and the creatures that live on the beach.
