Welcome to the website of the Belfast Coastal Reserve Action Group.
BCRAG is a community group actively involved in the protection, preservation and restoration of the Belfast Coastal Reserve's natural and cultural values. Native plant re-vegetation, bird monitoring and rubbish removal are some of the activities carried out on a regular basis. We work in conjunction with Parks Victoria, Traditional Owners and other Landcare and community groups on these projects.
During development of the Belfast Coastal Reserve Management Plan, BCRAG was identified as a key stakeholder and was an active participant. During this process, representatives of BCRAG attended meetings with government Ministers, officers from Department of Environment Land Water and Planning, Parks Victoria and local governments. Many submissions and numerous correspondence was also provided.
The Belfast Coastal Reserve Action Group has spent the last 5 years working to protect the Reserve between Warrnambool & Port Fairy from the damage caused by Commercial Horse Training.
We are now focusing on revegetation, removal of weeds and educating the broader community about the importance of protecting the Belfast Coastal Reserve.
