Seagrass Regeneration Mission – Konomie (North Keppel Island)
Spend a day on Konomie (North Keppel Island) collecting and dispersing seagrass to keep our local marine life thriving!
There has been a 50% reduction in seagrass meadow cover over the last 20 years on the CQ coastline. 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 seagrass species and collect seagrass flowers.
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.
