Canning River Residents Environment Protection Association (CRREPA)

Canning River Residents Environment Protection Association (CRREPA)

CRREPA is a local community-based, not-for-profit, voluntary organisation working to protect and restore the health, diversity and productivity of the Canning River, in particular the Yagan Wetland Reserve and the Rossmoyne/Shelley foreshores.

We work with state and local government agencies as well as with local schools and organisations. CRREPA is recognised as a knowledgeable voice on foreshore conservation issues. CRREPA obtains grant funding for conservation projects and has various sub-groups actively involved in ‘hands on’ environmental activities.

Why we are active

CRREPA was formed in 1994 with the aim of ensuring that the Lower Canning and Bullcreek riverine environments are restored & conserved as healthy habitats.

As such, CRREPA’s activities also benefit the enjoyment of the foreshore by present and future generations.

The catchment area

CRREPA’s focus area is within the Canning Catchment, in particular the Rossmoyne/Shelley foreshores, Yagan Wetland Reserve, and the Bullcreek inlet within the City of Canning.

The focus area contains a variety of Swan Coastal Plain habitats including Melaleuca and flooded gum flats, reed beds and areas of open water. These support a variety of water birds and invertebrates as well as providing an attractive and interesting urban experience for the local community. Together with the Canning River Regional Park, the area forms a link to the upper Canning and creates an important corridor for wildlife
