Citizen Scientists Monitoring Mangroves: the way of the future
We got it – a grant from the Port of Brisbane (PBPL) to monitor mangroves along Bulimba Creek and lower sections of the Brisbane River.
Important baseline data has already been collected with sponsorship from the Brisbane Airport Corporation and now that the PBPL is onboard we’ll be able to collect comparative data that when analysed will provide invaluable information to guide decision-making.
We’ll be engaging with the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee and welcoming their members onboard and plan to once again use vessels and skippers sourced from the Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre.
Thanks PBPL for seeing the merit in our proposal and looking to the future with monitoring and citizen scientists playing an important part.
