SEQ is rich in diversity, from streams, rivers, estuaries and mangroves to our stunning coastlines, one of the big drawcards for tourists and locals alike. 

Healthy aquatic habitats provide the water that we drink and use to grow our food, the seafood that we eat and access to the beautiful recreational spaces we love to visit. They are also habitat to a wonderful array of plants and animals, such as shorebirds, turtles and dugongs.

We rely on strong partnerships with volunteer groups, individuals, as well as government departments, other not-for-profit organisations and traditional owners to look after and care for these areas.

We were quick to react to the 2009 oil spill in Moreton Bay, Queensland’s’ worst environmental disaster, working with a number of partners to restore this largely affected area. 

Take a look at some of the initiatives we are currently involved in:

Supporting community scientists

We also support Seagrass-Watch and Mangrove Watch, two volunteer driven programs that monitor the state of our seagrass and mangroves. 

If you would like to get involved in these programs please click here (for seagrass) or here for mangroves. 

Get Involved

There are a number of active landcare, coastcare and beachare groups that you can get involved with.

Environmentally Friendly Moorings

We’re supporting local boat owners to install a new secure type of boat mooring that allows the regrowth of essential seagrass beds. Over 800 Dugongs and a large number of Green turtles in Moreton Bay rely on seagrass as the main source of their diet.
