Seagrass Regeneration Mission
Recreational fishers plus their family members are welcome to join this mission!
Spend a day on Curtis Island collecting and dispersing seagrass to keep our local marine life thriving!
On the Curtis Coast, there has been a 50% reduction in seagrass meadow cover over the last 20 years. Seagrass meadows are essential for healthy oceans and healthy marine life – including mangrove jack, barramundi, marine turtles and dugongs!
If you like to fish we’d love you to get involved in this project to learn how to identify and collect seagrass species, collect seagrass flowers and spread seagrass seeds. This is your chance to make a big difference to your local
environment. In the right conditions, one seedling can grow to cover one hectare of the seafloor!
Marine scientists will lead these seagrass regeneration missions. They will be available to answer all your ocean-related questions and provide more information about seagrass and the project.
If you’re ready for a full day beach adventure, under the sun and in fresh air then please join us.
