In 2007 the Roebuck Bay Working Group were awarded a State Coastal Award and Coastwest funding to employ a Project Officer for 25 hours per week! Other outstanding achievements are signs for the northern shores, proudly illustrating the Yawuru connection to Roebuck Bay as well as importance of the Bay to migratory shorebirds. It wasn’t all good news however, with another Lyngbya bloom during the wet season and a subsequent seagrass die off.
Roebuck Bay Working Group is comprised of Traditional Owners and government, local community, conservation groups and business. We work collaboratively to solve issues, raise awareness and encourage research and monitoring which supports responsible management and protection of Roebuck Bay.
