Port Phillip EcoCentre

The Port Phillip EcoCentre is a not-for-profit organisation that educates and inspires people to care for land, water, wildlife and community wellbeing. Our team of scientists, educators and volunteers hatch and nurture environmental solutions at all scales.

For all of us, it’s more important than ever that we take strong environmental action. Join in our fight against the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, and plastic waste through an online donation:
• $30 to sponsor education equipment
• $50 to enable our responses to community inquiries
• $100 to power Australian-first environmental research
• $500 to support a microplastic audit
• $1000 to give a voice to nature

How will your tax-deductible donation be used?

Community connection to nature

  • Education programs for 140+ schools and our 94,000 community members, annually, to regenerate ecosystems in Port Phillip Bay and its catchments
  • Partnerships with Indigenous cultural organisations, sharing knowledge and unique perspectives of the Bay
  • Wildlife and plant experiences at local gardens, beaches, and urban forests

Regenerative environmental action

  • Environmental leadership training and curriculum development for youth and teachers
  • Running our social inclusion community gardening program and community compost centre
  • Baykeeper citizen science projects to monitor Bay health

System transformation

  • Australian-first citizen science research, quantifying amounts and sources of microplastic pollution in the Bay
  • Coastal protection in a changing climate through measuring ‘living breakwaters’, reducing coastal erosion and creating habitat for species
