What is Earthcare St Kilda

Earthcare St Kilda was formed in 1989 by a group of local volunteers to help research and protect the Little Penguin colony which lives on the rocks which form the St Kilda breakwater.

Since that time, while maintaining its original purpose, Earthcare St Kilda’s membership has grown to provide volunteers from both the local and surrounding municipalities with opportunities to:

  • help enhance and protect the natural land and marine environments of the City of Port Phillip and Elster Creek,
  • meet and work on environmentally based projects alongside other enthusiastic volunteers, and
  • learn from each other and scientific specialists about the amazing range of wildlife which inhabit this inner city location.

We do what we can where we are…

As our motto indicates, we have evolved into a ‘hands on’, project-based group dedicated to improving the natural environment of the City of Port Phillip and Elster Creek.

Still most well known for our work with the Little Penguins, projects currently being undertaken by Earthcare St Kilda members include:

Where required, projects are undertaken with the approval of and permits from the relevant government bodies such as Parks Victoria and the relevant State Department.
