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. The working bees commence at 8am. 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. You will finish the working part of the session at 11am and then invited to stay for a simple BBQ and a short presentation/update on the project, wrapping up by 12 noon.
Working bees will take place at the new OzFish 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.
