Swan Estuary Reserves Action Group

Who We Are:
The Swan Estuary Reserves Action Group Inc. was formed in 2010 in response to a pressing need for action to ensure the long-term health and well-being of three very special areas in the Swan River Estuary that have been set aside by the wider community as A-Class Reserves. Members volunteer their time and expertise to restore and strengthen the resilience of native habitat in each of the Reserves.

To become a member, a person must support SERAG Inc.'s two objectives:

  • Enhance the long-term ecological health of the Swan River Estuary A-Class Reserves and adjacent river parks for the benefit of native fauna and for the enjoyment of current and future generations of the Perth Community.
  • Support the managing authorities and those organisations involved in the restoration of the natural environment of the Swan River Estuary.

Joining SERAG Inc. does not necessarily involve any commitment of time. Participation in our various projects and activities is always warmly welcomed, but entirely voluntary.
By becoming a member, a person is expressing support for our objectives, and thereby strengthening our capacity to attract vital funding for restoration work. This alone is a great reason to join!

Sustainable Population Australia Inc

Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) was formed in 1988 by people who felt that the issue of population numbers was overlooked, or regarded as too contentious, by many of those striving to preserve Australia's ecological heritage.
It has held public meetings and conferences in many parts of Australia. SPA branches around the country promote SPA's ideas, study local problems, lobby politicians and recruit new members.
Some branches hold regular meetings but the main link between members is the Newsletter, produced six times a year. This provides members with information and expert opinion to rebut the many myths about sustainability and population that one hears in conversation or sees in the press.
Formerly known as Australians for an Ecologically Sustainable Population, SPA is an ecological group dedicated to preserving species' habitats globally and in Australia from the degradation caused by human population growth. We work on many fronts to encourage informed public debate about how Australia and the world can achieve an ecologically sustainable population.

South West Forests Defence Foundation Inc

South West Forests Defence Foundation (SFDF) is a group that has been involved with four decades of involvement with the conservation of the Jarrah and Karri forests of the South West region of Western Australia. It was formed at approximately the same time as the government of Charles Court expressed interest in exploiting forests in the south west for woodchipping. Around the same time, the forests of the Darling Scarp were being allocated for removal for the mining of bauxite. Another group, the Campaign to Save Native Forests (CSNF), worked in co-operation with the SFDF on publishing critiques of the environmental conditions for the woodchipping at Manjimup. The SFDF continued to take issue with industry and government plans for Karri forests on the south coast region, and it was not until the late 1990s that the region was given some limited protection from forestry by the creation of national parks and reserves.

Roleybushcare Inc

Who Are We?

Roleybushcare is an environmental community group that is focused on the maintaining and protecting the bushland around the Roleystone and Karragullen areas.

We are a non-profit, volunteer organisation. The group receives funding from sponsorships and government grants to pay for the cost of materials.

We have regular revegetation field days during winter and dieback treatment field days during spring, summer and autumn.These days are made possible by the continuous participation of the community, so if you have the time, please feel free to join in.

Mission Statement

The objectives of the Group are:-

  • To work with the community to improve the conservation and social values of Roleystone bushland reserves.
  • To treat the bushland reserves in and around Roleystone to prevent the spread of dieback and minimize the impact of the disease on the reserves.
  • To educate the Roleystone community about the causes of dieback, nature of its spread and methods to treat susceptible or infected plants.
  • To encourage the community to reduce the risk of spreading or increasing the impact of dieback on local government reserves and on their own properties.
  • To foster dieback awareness and knowledge of methods to combat dieback in other local communities and conservation groups.


The Roleystone Dieback Action group (aka the Dieback Busters) was formed in 1991 when concerned residents were noticing the Jarrah trees in the area were dying. Ian Colquhoun has chaired the group since its inception.
An independent website,, was originally created by Chris Horgan and Paul Mutton in March 2006. The site's original objective was to provide a forum for environmental groups, and to provide a source of local bushland information for the area.
Once realising that our objectives were akin, in 2007 the resources for the website and the Dieback Busters merged. The group was renamed Roleybushcare The website is now managed by the group.
