Seagrass monitoring

It’s fun! Come down to Town Beach at 2:30 in the afternoon and march out onto the mudflats with us. Everyone is welcome and no previous experience is necessary. Find dugong feeding trails and fascinating sea creatures whilst contributing to an important data set that helps us monitor the health of Roebuck Bay!

Please bring or wear the following:

  • A hat, sun cream und suitable sun protective clothing, ie lightweight, long sleeves.
  • A personal water bottle to carry with you.
  • Sturdy enclosed footwear to protect you from sharp objects, stinging creatures and Lyngbya (commonly known as ‘blue-green algae’, capable of causing unpleasant skin irritation when wet and respiratory irritation when dry).

We will provide:

  • A healthy selection of afternoon tea and refreshments
  • Reef boots to borrow if you do not have your own suitable footwear
  • Instructions on monitoring techniques and equipment
  • Safety induction including hand sanitiser and guidance on social distancing

As this is the first event of the season we are meeting half an hour earlier than usual to allow time for a refresher in monitoring techniques in addition to our usual brief catch-up and refreshments.

Please direct any questions to the event coordinator, Victoria, via the [email protected] email or via mobile  phone on 0497 810 129.
