MangroveWatch

If you'd like to give the environment a helping hand, learn or develop skills or spend time with like-minded people - why not get on board and help monitor the Logan and Albert river's mangroves?

MangroveWatch is an exciting citizen science program that partners community volunteers with university researchers to photograph, film and document mangroves in various locations around Queensland.  A community driven Logan River MangroveWatch group is being established with the support of the Logan City Council EnviroGrants program, the Wildlife Preservation Society of QLD, Jacob's Well Environmental Education Centre and James Cook University.
