Choose from over 100 free events during May
Eco May has begun for 2016, a month-long celebration of WA's unique environment and sustainable living choices. The initiative is run by the Conservation Council of Western Australia (CCWA). Nowhere is this event more relevant than WA, a global biodiversity hotspot under threat. Groups, schools and councils across WA are hosting eco-themed activities throughout May to build community awareness and capability, and involve them in making a difference.
