About Cape Conservation Group.
Cape Conservation Group is a non-profit, community group based in Exmouth, North West Australia.
The group aims to “preserve and protect the Cape, now and for future generations”. This means that we work together to ensure the natural environment of the Cape Range Peninsula and it’s nearby waters are thought about and cared for.
How do you get involved?
You can get involved in CCG in a number of ways. You can come along to meetings and find out what’s going on. You can offer your view and ideas. You can get involved in a project, which could mean anything from representing the group at a meeting to writing letters to monitoring rock-wallabies or recording turtle tracks. You may even have your own conservation project you’d like to see up and running. Also have a look at membership options on the Join page..
