Leeuwin Environment Inc. is a locally based community organisation working to promote awareness of the environmental and social issues affecting the Margaret River - Augusta region. From its inception in 1970 (as the Leeuwin Conservation Group) to protect the Blackwood River from sandmining, it has been a forum where citizens could air their concerns about the environmental and social implications of development, and bring about improvements.
Over the years the group has been involved in forest campaigning, coastal development, local planning, marine park establishment, mining, water management and dam development, burning programs, and recycling. It has managed major coastal rehabilitation projects at Boodjidup and Kilcarnup. It has a number of affiliations, and supports the environmental work of other groups.
