2016 expedition

In 2016 Earthwatch, in partnership with the Geography Teachers Association of Victoria, sponsored six Victorian teachers to participate in the Exploring Australia's Underwater Meadows Earthwatch expedition. There they snorkelled, boated and waded in Moreton Bay to collect vital information on how Brisbane's urbanisation is affecting marine ecosystems.
