We work closely with the state government and community to raise awareness and get critical support for the Yarra. We help give a voice to the river and community that relies on it by taking part in key policy and decision-making processes.
The Yarra Riverkeeper Association and Environmental Justice Australia is pleased to be publishing this Review.
