Help protect and improve our natural environment. Together with 300 dedicated local volunteers, we're working to regenerate the bush, and restore estuaries and beaches.

Animals, the bush, and the coast

Eurobodalla supports diverse ecosystems and habitats. Eurobodalla is also home to many threatened species and endangered ecological communities, including flying-foxes.

Environmental education

Council offers environmental education programs, tours and workshops for schools, which complement the school curriculum. We also have fun activities for families and resources relating to environmental initiatives.


Get involved and get help

We can help you to make your garden, home, business or school more sustainable. Learn about bush friendly gardens, plant swaps, composting and worm farming workshops, rebates and incentives.

Introduced plants and animals

Weeds, introduced species and feral animals such as rabbits, Indian Mynas, foxes, pigs, goats and cats damage our unique environment and impact local agricultural systems. Learn how you can control these introduced species on your property.

Council protects the local environment and native animals through a range of programs, invasive species control, and practical clean up works. We can help in making sustainable choices, and we’ve reduced Council’s greenhouse gas emissions and saved over $1m a year in energy and water costs.
