Current Projects

Cooloola Coast Water Quality Monitoring

This project has been ongoing for 4 years and is no longer funded by any grants. Many thanks to our volunteers who have enthusiastically decided to continue collecting data!

Cooloola Underwater Biodiversity Assessment (CUBA)

The project provides baseline ‘state of the environment’ video record, comparing underwater geology, sandbanks and marine species before proposed infrastructure development at one of the sites (the Norman Point Jetty Project that was being considered by GRC).
