Wild populations of the Pacific oyster can occur in dense aggregations which can limit food and space available for native intertidal species.
Wildcare Deslacs has a partnership with the Pipe Clay Lagoon Oyster Growers Association to remove feral oysters from this coastal reserve.
Our members are dedicated to the area around Clifton Beach and the Cape Deslacs Conservation Area. We undertake a variety of work including beach cleanups, feral oyster removal, native grass plantings as well as weed control. All this, to make the area a great place for the local community.
