Reef monitoring

Over the past 10 years we have worked with partners to establish more than 20 regular monitoring sites inshore and offshore throughout Moreton Bay. Sites are visited annually by survey teams. A number of these are important tourism locations.

We also visit several reef sites scattered across inshore Moreton Bay that are seldom visited for snorkelling and diving, but are popular boating, fishing and recreational locations. These are also the closest in proximity to the bustling metropolis of Brisbane and the impacts from surrounding catchments.

We work closely with regional partners to monitor and report on findings. Since 2014, we have been collaborating with Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation and Quandamooka Land and Sea Management Agency to monitor important sea country sites.

Our data currently contributes to the annual Healthy Land and Water Report Card, is reported annually to our stakeholders through a summary report, and is shared with the community through our Reef Ambassador outreach program.
