Manly Environment Centre has been working to protect Manly's environment for the past 25 years.
So on Sunday (Sept 25) we took time out to celebrate some of our extraordinary successes; including turning Cabbage Tree Bay into a fully-protected marine paradise, bringing back Manly's iconic Norfolk Island Pines, fighting to reduce pollution at North Head sewerage treatement plant, rehabilitating Burnt Bridge creek, campaigning for North Head Sanctuary, and fighting for our precious Little Penguins and bandicoots.
At the party were our supporting organisations — National Parks and Wildlife, Taronga Zoo Project Penguin and Zoomobile, North Head Sanctuary Foundation, Save Manly Dam Catchment Group, NSW Fisheries Education Trailer, Sea Life Sanctuary, Friends of Cabbage Tree Bay, Whalespotter and A Marine Park for Sydney Campaign — and of course the staff and all the wonderful volunteers from the Manly Environment Centre.
Thanks to Dr Peter Macdonald for an inspirational speech. And here's to another 25 years as Manly's go-to community green group.
