The Geographe Catchment occurs within the Busselton-Augusta National Biodiversity Hotspot and South West WA International Biodiversity Hotspot. Hotspots have been ideintified as areas with a high number of endemic species of flora and fauna which are also under immediate threat from impacts such as land clearing, development pressures, salinity and weeds and feral animals.

GeoCatch has a number of its own projects that address biodiveristy issues but it also aims to partner with other organisations and groups in the catchment to protect and enhance the biodiversity values of the catchment.

GeoCatch staff provide general advice to the community on biodiversity issues such as weed and feral animal control, dieback, and revegetaion.

GeoCatch is also represented on a number of local groups whose focus in on protecting biodiversity issues.
