Natural wonders need protection. The Yarra Riverkeeper Association plays a fundamental role in keeping the Yarra, Birrarung River well-managed and full of life. But we can’t do it without your help. As Melbourne’s population expands, we fight for a clean, safe space for now and the future. We tell her story, and carefully monitor the Yarra, Birrarung's health and the activities that affect it. We also lobby and educate government, businesses, and individuals on why she must be conserved.
The Yarra Riverkeeper Association is made for and by the community. We tackle important ecological risks that could have a devastating impact on the Yarra, Birrarung – and the countless people, animals and plants who depend on it. Access to nature has never been more important for a healthy mind and body. However, it’s rapidly becoming polluted and uninhabitable. With your support, we can ensure your Yarra, Birrarung stays healthy, protected, and loved.
We proactively research the sources and flows of litter, as well as litter management activities.
Through ecological regeneration, the Yarra Riverkeepers are helping your Yarra be a home for all species, big and small.
We work closely with the state government and community to raise awareness and for critical support.
We believe it is important that people are able to learn about the Yarra, in all of its complexity.
