Community-based monitoring by Friends Groups
There are many friends groups associated with MPAs that coordinate monitoring programs within their respective parks. These programs may follow Sea Search or Reef Watch methods or they may be monitoring factors outside the scope of these programs.
Across the state the variety of projects coordinated by Friends Groups include:
- Seagrass monitoring
- Weed and pest removal
- Documenting migratory and resident bird species
- Intertidal reef monitoring
- Mangrove monitoring
- Biodiversity surveys such as the Great Victorian Fish Count.
For more information on Friends groups please visit the 'Get Involved' section.
