Wildlife Queensland Coastal Citizen Science

Conducting mangrove and seagrass monitoring around Moreton Bay

Seagrass and mangroves are valuable resources. They provide food and shelter for a multitude of species including fish, crabs and prawns.  Seagrass in particular is important to sea turtles, dugongs and shorebirds, while mangroves stabilise shorelines and provide protection from storm surges. The health of our seagrass and mangroves are under constant threat from both natural and human impacts, and we need your help to monitor their condition.

By joining the Wildlife Queensland Coastal Citizen Science team of volunteers, you can be trained to do just that, and at the same time contribute to the management of the Moreton Bay.

Our survey methods are scientifically rigorous but simple and easy to learn.  The data helps guide decision making in areas such as natural resource management, Marine Park planning and ecosystem health monitoring.

If the idea of a few hours with nature, and the knowledge that your participation assists in the management of our natural resources appeals to you, then join the Wildlife Queensland Coastal Science team.  It’s a fun activity and provides a great opportunity to get to know Moreton Bay and its wildlife.
