“I found the CEC and its mission compelling from my first encounter with Lizzie, Shayne and Jack. Great people, with a plan, involving the wider community in their work, making a difference at a regional scale. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this expanding business committed to protecting the Otways; a place I’ve loved since childhood.”
