Saving Queensland's Manatees & Dolphins
Moreton Bay is home to Moreton Island, which attracts many tourists with its crystal-clear lakes, pristine lagoons, and abundant marine life. But as Brisbane grows, this vital marine ecosystem faces extreme threats from coastal development, pollution, and increased freight traffic (the city has one of Australia’s fastest growing container ports). Help scientists figure out exactly how industrialization is affecting Moreton Bay by snorkeling, boating, and wading in its clear waters.
