Membership Due for 2016 2017 Financial Year

Membership Form 2016 2017.docx

Membership Form 2016 2017.PDF

Thankyou for your support of Maroochy Waterwatch and please find above your membership form for this financial year.

For those of you who attended the AGM in December, the membership voted on moving the organisation to be a company limited be guarantee and changing the legal name to ECOllaboration.  Maroochy Waterwatch will still remain a business name for the valuable community activities looking after the Maroochy River.

I am pleased to inform you that ASIC recently registered the company.  However there are many other processes that need to be completed with the new structure and this may take some time.  As such we are sending out the normal membership renewal as Maroochy Waterwatch.  In the coming years you will be able to be a member of either ECOllaboration or Maroochy Waterwatch, depending on your relationship with the organisation!

By being a member of Maroochy Waterwatch, you can enable some amazing outcomes in looking after the environment.  Some of these have included:

  • Volunteering in various projects and administration with 40 volunteers and student placements
  • 30 000 pieces of marine debris removed from coast beaches with 22 volunteers
  • 13 000L of rubbish pulled out of the Maroochy and Mooloolah Rivers with 50 volunteers
  • 15 Community frog surveys with 40 volunteers
  • Community water testing amassing 8000 data entries from 60 volunteers
  • Industrial stormwater monitoring at 120 sites
  • Natural area management of 150 sites
