BIEPA Projects

Dugong Diaries

Dugong Diaries is a citizen science project developing a picture of how dugongs utilise Bribie Island's waterways so they can be better protected.

Turtle Awareness

We raise community awareness of Bribie Island's threatened marine turtles and advocate for best-practice management of the island's nesting beaches and the surrounding Marine Park, to improve their protection.

Fighting Damaging DAs

We are getting to grips with the planning system and challenging Development Applications that will have a significant detrimental impact on native habitat and wildlife on Bribie Island and surrounds.

Branding Refresh

We are refreshing BIEPA's stall — seen every month at the Rotary Markets in Bongaree — and other promotional material to better connect with a more diverse demographic to encourage people to join BIEPA who are keen to get actively involved.

Welcome Pack

We're creating a welcome pack for new BIEPA members

Bribie Island Bioblitz

BIO = Life
BLITZ = To do something quickly and intensively
“A BioBlitz is a united effort to discover and record as many living things or evidence of
living things as possible, within a set location, over a given time period ”

Securing Shorebirds

Working, advocating, and collaborating to secure a future for the threatened Shorebirds of Bribie Island and surrounds.

Wallum Walks

Guided and self-guided wildflower walks through the unique wallum habitat on Bribie Island.

Bribie Island Turtle Trackers

BIEPA commends the important work of Bribie Island Turtle Trackers (BITTs), a specialist group of autonomous, Government-trained and Accredited Turtle Monitors and Marine Strandings Responders who work directly to protect the marine turtles of Bribie Island and our surrounding waters.

Marine Debris

We are protecting native wildlife along the coastal fringes of Bribie Island and surrounds from the dangers posed by litter and other marine debris.

Dune Planting

We are demonstrating that growing beaches by planting on dunes and protecting them from pedestrian traffic is the most cost-effective and successful foreshore management practice in erosion prevention.

Toad Busters

We aim to control and eventually eradicate cane toads (Rhinella marina) on Bribie Island.

Nature-based Tourism

We work with local government to promote nature-based tourism as a way to protect nature on Bribie Island by making it a vital asset for local businesses.

Oyster Reef Restoration

We are partnering with OzFish and Healthy Land and Water to restore oyster reefs in Pumicestone Passage. OzFish is already running a successful shellfish reef restoration programme in Moreton Bay, so we are working with them to do the same in our Marine Park.

Queen's Jubilee Planting

We are planting and nurturing native trees and shrubs in Bribie Island parks as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Backyard Biodiversity

We are finding ways to encourage residents to make space for native plants in their gardens to encourage native wildlife to flourish, one garden at a time.
