Coast to Coral: Restoration Opportunities in a UNESCO Biosphere

Join Reef Check Australia and friends on the first Tuesday night of each month in your lounge room/office/comfy chair, for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments.


Maddison Brown is an enthusiastic marine ecologist who previously worked to support the Noosa Oyster Reef Restoration Project and is now conducting a PhD at the University of Queensland on blue carbon ecosystems (which include mangroves, seagrass and coastal wetlands) and the biodiversity that they inhabit. Alongside research, Maddison is passionate about marine science communication, accessibility, inclusivity and environmental conservation.  


Identification of Coastal Wetland Restoration Opportunities in a UNESCO Biosphere to support threatened species, biodiversity, coastal protection and cultural heritage values. 

The University of Queensland is collaborating with the Noosa Council and Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters of the Noosa area, the Kabi Kabi people, to explore opportunities to embark on coastal wetland restoration projects. The Noosa Council, located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, aim to improve biodiversity resilience to climate change and explore opportunities for tidal restoration for blue carbon (carbon sequestration). 


Virtual doors (zoom) opens at 6.25pm for a 6:30 pm start.
