Eyre Peninsula Coastal action plan

The Eyre Peninsula Coastal Action Plan is a detailed conservation study and action plan which covers 2,475 kilometres of coastline – nearly half the length of South Australia’s coast - from Two Hummocks Point north of Whyalla to the eastern boundary of the Wahgunyah Conservation Park in the Far West. It provides baseline information for the protection and management of the coast and outlines the actions required.

The plan divides the coast into 85 coastal cells, each around 25 km in length. It provides detailed information on 56 of the cells, including a description of the geology, type of coastline, land uses, flora and fauna lists. 
Threats are identified for each of these 56 cells, such as potential climate change impacts, pest plants and animals, marine debris and the impact of off-road vehicles on beaches, samphire areas and beach nesting birds. 
If you want a copy of the plan on DVD, please call the Natural Resources Centre on (08) 8688 3111 or call in at 86 Tasman Terrace Port Lincoln.
