Public Talk: Presenter Catherine McMahon from the Estuary Care Foundation

5 July 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The evolving Port River & Barker Inlet Estuary

This event will occur at the Plympton Community Centre, with virtual attendance also (using Zoom communications software)

The Port River and Barker Inlet Estuary remains vital to Kaurna people, industry and community. Catherine McMahon will discuss the challenges being faced, and the possibilities and well-being of the Port River and Barker inlet Estuary.

Catherine McMahon is the Secretary, Founder and Hon. Executive Officer of the Estuary Care Foundation SA, which was established in 2016 to promote the protection of the ecology and shorelines of South Australia’s Port River and Barker inlet.
The Foundation has a culture of engaging with communities (including environment, government, business and education), and a strong foundation in citizen science. It promotes nature-based solutions through community action.

The key objectives of the Foundation are to:
• Conserve, protect, enhance and promote the ecology of the Port River and Barker Inlet Estuary, and the benefits thus provided
• Support, undertake, facilitate and monitor ecoengineering solutions to safeguard shorelines, community assets and the habitat of estuarine species from rising sea levels
• Facilitate research, education and training relevant to the conservation, protection and restoration of, and carbon sequestration in, the Port River and Barker inlet Estuary
• Pursue the objects of the Foundation in collaboration with local residents, community organisations, industries, corporations, and governments.
