Daintree's Hidden Coastline - November 2018

From the 15-21 November 2018, two teachers plus two other enthusiastic mangrove warriers will travel to the Daintree Rainforest in north Queensland.

There they will be acting as research assistants, exploring the river by boat and on foot, assessing the condition of the fringing mangrove habitats by conducting surveys, filming the shoreline, measuring habitats, and conducting field biomass assessments.
