Over the (slightly damp) Easter Long Weekend, 2 of our amazing ambassadors put on their raincoats and joined the Gold Coast Seagrass team to conduct the last of the surveys for the current season at Wave Break Island.
This all sand, man-made island was constructed as part of the Gold Coast Seaway in 1985. Seagrass has become a vital inclusion to the waterways providing food to the local turtles, sea wrass and even dugongs.
Check out the run down below from Tamara:
"We learnt a lot about the importance of seagrass and its role and how fragile it can be. Even kite surfing can be a threat.
Despite the rain, we all had a lot of fun with seagrass, transect lines, Easter eggs and even a rainbow thrown in!"
Thanks to the City of Gold Coast Council for supporting Reef Check Ambassadors and events and of course to our awesome ambassadors for getting involved!
