Dogs Out and About – our coastal areas

Port Macquarie Hastings Council’s coastal and estuary coordinator, Ben, talks about how we can best look after our coastal areas and environment when out and about with our dogs.

Did you know ...


If dog poo is not picked up it can end up in the water at our beaches and estuaries.

When dog poo enters the water, it can create elevated levels of bacteria which in turn can become a risk to human health.

So be a responsible dog owner and make sure you have your doggy bag ready to pick up after your pooch!
