Cable Beach Mural

Broome North Primary School received $10,000 in funding towards the Cable Beach Mural.

The mural aims to create more community awareness about the importance of water to local wildlife.

Students and their families took part in the project to transform a water tank along Cable Beach esplanade into a stunning mural celebrating the local community’s unique birdlife and waterways. Through the project students also learned about how we help support Broome’s incredibly diverse wildlife by providing a bird-friendly water habitat at its two wastewater treatment facilities.

The mural features 7 different types of local birds including the Black-tailed Godwit, White-bellied Sea-eagle and Black-necked Stork. Perth-based artist Mel McVee created the designs for the mural and worked with the students and their families to take it from concept to reality.

Round 5 of the Kimberley Community Grants is now open. Visit www.watercorporation.com.au/kcgrants to apply and for further information! Grants close 4pm WST, 8 May 2020.
