To work with the community and management agencies to manage the catchment of Geographe Bay and its marine environment so that natural systems, people and their activities co-exist in a healthy, productive and sustainable way.
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. The organisation employs professional staff who support GeoCatch and coordinate a wide range of environmental projects.
GeoCatch is sponsored by 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.
