Value of coast survey
THE Peron Naturaliste Partnership, with support from City of Rockingham, is undertaking a coastal values project at Waikiki Beach.
The project team has been working together since the middle of last year to gain a better understanding of what communities currently value at the beach and how those values may be affected by coastal erosion and climate change.
Coastal adaption coordinator Joanne Ludbrook said it was important to hear from the community to better plan and manage coastal areas in order to maintain those features and uses of the coast.
The community and Waikiki Beach users are being asked to complete a survey online by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/r/coastalvaluesrockingham.
Community members undertaking the survey are then asked attend a workshop at the Safety Bay Library on April 6.

The project received funding from the Western Australian Planning Commission’s Coastal Management Plan Assistance Program.
