World Wetlands Day - Barwon Mangrove Watch

It's ‪#‎WorldWetlandsDay‬! And to celebrate Dr Norm Duke launched MangroveWatch on the Barwon River, Victoria. This is the first MangroveWatch monitoring program to start up in Victoria and the first for temperate Australia. We welcome on board our new Vic volunteers from NAB (inspired by their recent Earthwatch Australia adventures in the Daintree) and welcome back some southerly migrated MangroveWatchers. Special thanks to The Nature Conservancy in Australia for sponsoring the monitoring equipment. We look forward to monitoring the condition of mangroves and shorelines in the Barwon R - watch this space for updates.
