Summer by the Sea turns up the heat

Each year during the January school holidays, Coastcare Victoria coordinates the delivery of hundreds of ‘Summer by the Sea’ activities. The program provides the opportunity for visitors to learn more about the challenges facing Victoria’s coastal and marine environments, which support a wide variety of species and habitats.

Our local support of the program helped to facilitate a series of lectures at libraries in Altona, Altona North and Altona Meadows by Andrew Wegener of Australian Wildlife Lectures, as well as an interactive display involving snakes, lizards, stick insects, frogs and more.

Altona Refinery SSHE Manager David Schuller said that support for environmental awareness initiatives such the ‘Summer by the Sea’ program was an important focus for the refinery.

“As an organisation, ExxonMobil’s commitment to environmental responsibility goes beyond compliance with regulatory requirements. We are also an active contributor to a range of organisations that conduct important environmental research, conservation and education programs.

“Whether it’s supporting external programs such as ‘Summer by the Sea’ or internal conservation initiatives such as the employee tree-planting day held at the Kororoit Creek river bank in late 2017, the local environment remains a priority for the team at Altona Refinery,” he said.
