Blue Wedges Coalition

Blue Wedges

What We Do:

The Blue Wedges Coalition aims to promote the protection, conservation and government management of the Blue Wedges, Port Phillip and Westernport Bays, and the waterways which flow into them. About 85% of plants and animals in southern waters are found nowhere else in the world, resulting in unique and extraordinary biodiversity! But in Westernport Bay alone, over 70% of sea grass has been lost due to human activities; mainly port and land developments. Marine and freshwater open space and its biodiversity must be protected from threats including deepenng the shipping channels in The Rip and Port Phillip Bay, unbridled development in catchment areas and ill-thought proposals for breakwaters and marina developments around the coastlines. Blue Wedges Coaliton activities include rallies, presentations, education, advocacy (submissions, legal action, media etc) and events (films, fundraising, walks, swims, fishing competitions, carnivals, photo competitions, community meetings).
