Putting a spotlight on mangroves

If you like fish, or coral or clean water . . . then you must like mangroves!

During the past six months Citizen Scientists and students from the Logan area have monitored the banks of the Logan and Albert Rivers.  They’ve been onboard vessels from Jacobs Well Environmental Education Centre and used the Shoreline Video Assessment Method (SVAM) of monitoring mangroves.

As part of National Science Week celebrations we’ll be putting the spotlight on mangroves by revealing the results of this collaborative project.  The Logan-Albert MangroveWatch participants will share through the arts and performance what mangroves mean to them, and MangroveWatch Scientists Jock Mackenzie and Dr Norm Duke will enthuse you with their info-packed presentation on the results of these community mangrove surveys.
