Friends of Painkalac Creek Estuary are committed to protecting the areas of wetlands that exist in lower Painkalac Creek and Mellors Swamp. These areas are of considerable environmental significance and have suffered from invasion of exotic weeds over many years. Grasslands like this are very rare in the area.
Conservation covenants between the Surf Coast Shire and Trust for Nature have been placed on the Painkalac Creek and Mellors Swamp.
The main focus of the Friend’s group is to conserve the wetland environment by involvement in the following:
