Healthy Estuaries WA is a $25 million State Government program, building on the work of the Regional Estuaries Initiative (2016-20) and delivering core actions of Revitalising Geographe Waterways.

Launched in June 2020, Healthy Estuaries WA is focused on improving the health of the Peel-Harvey Estuary, Leschenault Estuary, Vasse-Geographe waterways, Hardy Inlet, Wilson Inlet, Torbay Inlet and Oyster Harbour.

The program includes work to reduce nutrient inputs from priority catchments, uses the latest science to monitor and effectively manage waterways, and continues to build collaboration between community, scientists, government and industry.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and our partners have over 25 years’ experience and scientific understanding of estuary science and conditions. This knowledge has been used to shape practical solutions and management tools.
