Wetlands and Waterways of Moreton Bay

Moreton Bay is the gateway to our local ocean, wetlands and rivers so come along and help contribute to the health of this amazing natural wonder we can all access.

CVA is committed to doing what we can to help these incredibly important areas here in Brisbane.

Through our partnerships we have events running on a regular basis in Brisbane and Moreton Bay. Come along to events focused on helping sensitive areas such as RAMSAR listed melaleuca and mangrove wetlands while also exploring and learning about the important role the play the larger marine environments of the Brisbane river and Moreton Bay.

Learn about native and exotic flora and fauna that inhabit these ecosystems, while contributing to health of these areas.

These ecosystems provide food and shelter for endangered species such as the Water Mouse or Eastern Curlew that need help to protect their habitats. So help us protect these habitats and make a difference while learning, meeting likeminded people and creating a connection with our amazing Moreton Bay and its waterways!

 

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to become a hero!
