To provide leadership, raise awareness and collaborate with our partners, stakeholders and the community to protect and enhance the natural values and support sustainable growth of the Geographe Bay Catchment.
The Geographe Catchment Council (GeoCatch) is a community based natural resource management body formed in 1997 as a result of growing concern about the health of the Geographe Catchment. Since this time GeoCatch has worked in partnership with the local community and government agencies to implement priority natural resource management action in the catchment.
GeoCatch is made up of nine community members and six members representing government agencies and local government.
GeoCatch works in close partnership with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) and receives funding from a range of sources, including Federal and State Governments, South West Catchments Council, Local Government and Lotterywest.
The organisation employs professional staff who support GeoCatch and coordinate a wide range of environmental projects.
