The Werribee River Association (WRIVA) began its life in Werribee Township in 1981, with a view to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Werribee River. WRIVA understood that the whole of the river was important, and has acted strategically and practically, in an effort to gain support for the whole of the Werribee catchment. Based in Werribee, WRIVA works locally with Wyndham City Council, Melbourne Water, and Parks Victoria.
LitterWatch – a local initiative with global outcomes!
LitterWatch is a local initiative by concerned organisations and groups; aware plastic litter is a major threat to our environment. Plastic does not disappear. It ends up in our oceans, even if dropped in Wyndham, somewhere in metropolitan Melbourne or even inland, and will last for a long time, causing irreparable damage.
LitterWatch asks our participants that they take some action to support our litter concerns.
- Clean up a litter hot spot
- Advocate for change
- Become better consumers
