OzFish is working hard to restore the amazing oyster reefs of Moreton Bay. 95% of this vital habitat has been lost since European settlement and we need to bring it back!
Come and join our band of committed volunteers at one of our working bees happening every second Wednesday and fourth Saturday of each month. For your convenience, we have 2 sessions on each of these days. The morning working bees commence at 8am. You will finish the working part of the session around 11.15am and then invited to stay for a simple BBQ and a short update/discussion on the project, wrapping up by 11.45am. If you prefer the afternoon session, please join the BBQ/discussion at 11.30am, with work commencing at noon and wrapping up around 3.30pm.
You will be manufacturing Robust Oyster Baskets (ROBs) and filling these with washed oyster shell collected from oyster shuckers, seafood outlets and restaurants, ready for deployment into beautiful Moreton Bay. The ROBs are used as base structures for ground-breaking shellfish restoration projects in the bay.
Working bees will take place at OzFish Oyster World, our shell recycling location at Port of Brisbane Park, Whimbrel St, Port of Brisbane. Please remember to wear sun-smart clothing, shoes or boots that can take a bit of water, sunscreen, and a hat. If you have gloves, please bring them. Don’t forget to bring plenty of drinking water and perhaps a snack. Registration is essential.
