We are a dedicated team of hard working locals who are working towards improving the habitat and recreational values of the Nuns beach area.
Together we are aiming to restore the Portland beach and cliff base area through community involvement, support and action. The current focus is to continue to remove the Sea Spurge from Nuns Beach as well as planting indigenous plants and removing weeds from the cliff base area. PCCI are in consultation with the SEA Alliance, Gunditj-Mirring, Glenelg Shire Council, CFA and DELWP to work together to protect and maintain this biodiverse iconic habitat.
