Logan River MangroveWatch Project: Phase 2

Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF)

Wildlife Queensland Coastal Citizen Science joined Wildlife Queensland Logan Branch at the LEAF, shared some information about the project and even recruited a couple of new crew for our upcoming monitoring.

Pictured above, Wildlife Queensland Logan Branch President Ted Fensom together with Wildlife Queensland Coastal Citizen Scientist and Healthy Waterways Champion Geoffrey Redman explain MangroveWatch devised by James Cook University TropWater Scientists, techniques and varying aspects of the project with one of the LEAFers.

Thanks to work done by SEQ Catchments we are able to share a ‘story board’ of the past monitoring, pictured below.

All aboard for MangroveWatch on Logan River

Weather conditions have forced some cancellations but more dates are now set for monitoring in June.

You can find out more about the Logan River MangroveWatch Project and how to be involved at Kimberley College on Thursday 25th May at 7pm.  You’ll also find us at the Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) on Sunday 28th May.  We’d love to you see you!

EnviroGrant Funds further Mangrove Monitoring

It’s on again!  Thanks to the Logan City Council’s EnviroGrants, Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland Logan Branch is once again able to undertake monitoring of mangroves on the Logan River using the SVAM – Shoreline Video Assessment Methodology devised by James Cook University’s TropWater Scientists.

This follows the highly successful 2014 – 2015 Logan River MangroveWatch Project . . . read MW Logan, it’s on again

25th May 2016

Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland Logan Branch has once again received funding from the Logan City Council’s EnviroGrant to assist with monitoring Logan River mangroves.

Logan River MangroveWatch: Phase 2 will result in the collection of data and a scientifically-analysed report.  The project is a complimentary to a Project undertaken in 2014-2015 in which the initial, base-line data was collected.  MangroveWatch is a long-term monitoring program requiring subsequent monitoring and reporting to identify changes in extent and condition of mangroves and riparian habitat. This project will enable data to be collected which can be compared against existing data/reports and inform Logan City Council’s Waterways & Wetlands Recovery Program.

As with the initial data collection, the project will once again be coordinated by Wildlife Queensland Coastal Citizen Science.  Wildlife Queensland Logan Branch President David Keogh will attend the LEAF (Logan Eco Action Festival) at which the lucky EnviroGrant recipients will be awarded their funds.
