Community Volunteers

A key feature of MangroveWatch is its close partnership between community volunteers and scientists from the James Cook University’s Mangrove Hub. Together they are systematically recording basic data as video and still imagery for assessments of estuarine habitat health.

Armed with expert support, training and advice, MangroveWatch volunteers in key regions are actively contributing to the monitoring of local estuaries and shorelines. An important goal in this phase of the program is to develop a network of like minded groups with the aim of producing public documents that describe important issues affecting local estuaries and mangroves, and their overall health.

Donations & Sponsorships

MangroveWatch Ltd is a registered charitable company in Australia. To achieve its goals and those of community participants, the program relies on funding and sponsorships to keep things going.

Donations and Sponsorships will be acknowledged on this site.

We need support for:

  • Community volunteers for small vessel hire and fuel
  • Field kits - costing up to $AUD3,000 each
  • Promotional items and awards such as T-Shirts and hats
  • Website maintenance
  • Computers and support for shoreline assessments by the Mangrove Hub
