In 2016, Corangamite CMA formed a new partnership with Surfing Victoria with the aim of increasing the connection that the surfing community has with their local surfing environments.
One of the projects implemented is the CCMA's direct sponsorship of the Junior Category of the 2017 Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles. Thereby, improving Indigenous youth connection and recognition.
Surfing Victoria and Corangamite CMA have established a number of new initiatives to encourage the involvement of the surfing community in environmental projects.
By working together Surfing Victoria and Corangamite CMA can reach their common goals and values of increasing local participation in both surfing and natural resource management.
