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