The major weed infestation along the difficult coastal terrain has been awarded funding for a contractor to remove the large woody weeds to allow for the revegetation of the area with indigenous plants.

ANGAIR applied for the Coastcare Community Grants Program which aims to fund projects with clear environmental benefits and supports the conservation of habitat preservation and revegetation.

This grant is part of the ongoing coastal management works at Soapy Rocks outlines in the Anglesea Ecological Management Plan report in 2013.

The Soapy Rocks coastal area has major weed infestations in difficult terrain which includes landslip areas.

Contractors have removed large areas of Coastal Tea-tree and Sallow Wattle which will allow for indigenous revegetation in the area.

Students from St Bernard Catholic College will continue to assist ANGAIR with the restoration of the Soapy Rocks area including tasks such as mulching and planting.
