Cape Life originated from a personal affiliation with the South West Capes region and its diverse and unique ecosystems. It has since expanded beyond this geographical area, with Cape Life working across projects in the Pilbara, Mid West, Greater Bunbury, Peel regions and broader South West. Our aim is to help preserve and restore Western Australia’s unique and ancient landscapes. We have a dedicated group of professional, experienced, local staff who share a passion for this great land that we live in.

Peter Kay, Manager of Works and Services

South West Catchments Council

“Cape Life has been instrumental to planning and implementing a riparian restoration project for SWCC in the Lower Blackwood Catchment. Brook (Director) has provided expert advice on seed collection, direct seeding and revegetation and professionally project managed works to ensure these activities are being completed as contracted. At all times Brook has provided regular project progress updates.

Paramount to this community based project, Brook has also built good working relationships with the landholders and liaises directly with them to co-ordinate their weed control contribution to the project. This has helped to engage and build capacity of the landholders”

Lorraine Duffy, Biodiversity Project Manager

Warren Catchments Council

“In June 2015, Cape Life’s team of enthusiastic workers planted 145,000 provenance native seedlings across the riparian zone on the Warren River for our project – Restoring Natural Riparian Vegetation Systems Along the Warren and Donnelly Rivers.

The sites along the river were remote and often difficult to access and were by no means the usual “flat prepared paddock” types of area.  The Cape Life team were happy to work in with our planting designs, willingly took on board necessary changes as planting progressed and finished within the estimated time frame.  Their daily updates and excellent communication skills helped us prepare for the next few days allowing the planting program to run smoothly.

We thank Cape Life for their professional service and involvement in our project”
