Coast to Coral (Sunshine Coast) : Our Resilient Coast. Our Future
Come and join Reef Check Australia and friends at Underwater World Sealife - Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, Australia for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments. Each month we have a new, interesting and engaging speaker.
This month the team from Sunshine Coast Council will be running an interactive Open House session about coastal processes and Coastal Hazard Adaptation. Sunshine Coast Council has started the process to develop a long-term strategy (called ‘Our Resilient Coast. Our Future’)
To be developed over the next 18 months, the purpose of the project is to better understand how climate change and coastal hazards (erosion and temporary or permanent inundation) may affect coastal communities, the local economy and natural environment over the long term.
It’s about getting on the ‘front-foot’ to proactively plan for and identify a range of coastal management (adaptation) options to increase the resilience of our region over time
As part of the process to develop the strategy and identify appropriate adaptation options, it is vital Council hears from our community and those who care about the future management of our coastal zone.
This open house session gives you the chance to tell Council about your experiences with coastal hazards and what you value about our coastal areas
The night is guaranteed to be informative and interesting!
The talk will be held in the Seal Stadium at SEALIFE Mooloolaba, on Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba. Doors open at 6:15 pm for a 6:30 pm start. Stay after the event for a discussion with the presenter and other attendees and enjoy a pizza-rific snack.
6:15: Grab a seat
6:30: Talk kicks-off

Entry is $2 (which gets you pizza at the end).
