Every year, volunteers come together to collect citizen science data about five seagrass sites across our region. Reef Catchments is looking to support a volunteer group in Mackay/Isaac to monitor southern sites.
The Mackay Whitsunday Isaac coastal zone is characterised by a diverse range of natural features including sandy beaches, rocky headlands, extensive intertidal flats, and substantial areas of coastal wetlands. These areas are under increasing threat from development, climate change, population growth and recreational use.
Part of the Coasts and Communities Program deals with working with coastal communities to identify local environmental problems and achieve practical solutions. Coastcare is an Australia-wide community of volunteers who care for their coast.
