What will I gain from joining Watergum Seagrass?
When you volunteer for us you have the opportunity to gain hands on training in scientific skills that are simple and easy to apply. Skills will be developed in seagrass identification, visual assessment techniques, compass and GPS use. Volunteers also gain a broad understanding of environmental and ecological processes such as recognition of toxic macro algae blooms and human impacts. You will also get a warm fussy feeling, knowing you are contributing to conserving a poorly understood and often undervalued ecosystem.
If you need another incentive, our surveys are also a great way to meet like-minded members of the community. We welcome individuals or groups!
