1 June 2023 | Where passion meets action – a recap of a member’s OzFish experience
I heard about OzFish a few years ago and was eager to learn how I could contribute to the organisation’s vision of healthier waterways. I am now a Chapter leader, participating in an exclusive habitat restoration experience just for its members. OzFish have events running all over Australia; some are open to everyone, and others are only open to members. It‘s one of the things that makes being a member so rewarding. I was privileged to be invited to a six-day immersive experience at Turkey Beach, near Gladstone Queensland, supporting research on shellfish restoration. It was an opportunity to learn about the benefits and connectedness of habitats, and how we can support similar habitats in our local waterways, this one had a focus on shellfish.
