The importance of estuary management

Estuaries are an amazing natural space where fresh river water meets the sea, and in the Glenelg Hopkins CMA region, we have 5 intermittently closed estuary areas we manage.

With the help of some amazing volunteers and local communities, our estuaries, the way we use them and interact with them is improving.
