Yakamia Creek: Albany’s living stream stars in new film

The video celebrates the success of South Coast NRM’s Yakamia Creek project that will improve habitat value of the creek and the health of Oyster Harbour.

Over the two years of the Yakamia Creek Fish Friendly Farms project, there has been 25 community engagement events involving over 300 people and establishing three rehabilitation sites, engaging 20 contractors along with volunteers planting more than 5000 seedlings.

The rehabilitation sites demonstrate achievable options to encourage better management practises by landowners that have Yakamia Creek flowing through their property.

South Coast NRM hopes to continue this project with the new State Government Healthy Estuaries WA program and attract further funds to support rehabilitation actions on Yakamia Creek.
