Sundowner Cruise

On 21 February, 59 Port Mandurah residents attended a fabulous evening aboard the Dancing Dolphin. Hosted by Mandurah Cruises with guest speaker Martin van Aswegen from the Mandurah Dolphin Research Project (Murdoch University), we discovered so much about the dolphins in our waterways.
Guests were entertained with scientific information and fun facts about the dolphins in the Peel-Harvey Estuary plus comparisons to dolphins in Shark Bay and ocean-going dolphins between Point Peron and Bunbury.
For more photos from this event please visit our facebook page.
Mandurah Cruises generously donated their boat and crew, and Martin gave his time willingly, so the committee resolved to donate the proceeds of the evening to the Mandurah Dolphin Rescue Group. This donation, combined with a raffle held on board resulted in a total of $1,150 being donated. Sally and Harry Kirby from the rescue group have acknowledged our donation and are thrilled with the result.
If you would like to donate to this wonderful organisation you can find out more here.

Meeting with the Mayor
Approximately 60 residents attended a special community forum on 26 February with Mayor Rhys Williams,
CEO Mark Newman and other city officers.
The subject was about the benefits and issues around Mandurah becoming a premium Christmas destination.

Many good ideas came out of the meeting, such as adding to the existing light features in the water and lighting up the foreshores, city centre, bridges and large trees.
Also producing a map with vantage points, boat ramps, public jetties and car parking.

Other suggestions included a Christmas market, sculptures in the sea, and a Christmas boat flotilla.
Several members voiced their concerns about safety on the canals during the lights season. PMRA President Kerrie Andrews invited them to address their concerns with Sergeant Troy Pillage at our AGM on 22 March.
