Reef Blitz Moreton Bay

Reef Blitz Moreton Bay

On Sunday Hazel and I joined a Reef Blitz boat trip to Moreton Bay to St Helen Island to help with some citizen science.  It was a joint arrangement by Reef Check, Coral Watch and Mangrove Watch, with each organisation providing lots of great information about how we can all help collect data for their research – please click on the links in this paragraph to learn more.

It was a great day out and being an avid scuba diver and lover of sea life I’ll definitely be looking at ways to help.

Oh yes, that was a quick sketch from a photo of an eel and turtle within the Coral Watch brochure 🙂

James Woodford Talk in Brisbane

The answer is… James Woodford, who has written marvellous books entitled Secret Life of Wombats, Wollemi Pine, Great Barrier Reef and Great White.

Yesterday, Hazel and I went to a talk by James Woodford at Carindale Library here in Brisbane about his new book Great White.  He recounted some excellent tales of his adventures cage diving with the sharks, complimented by some excellent photos of the beautiful fish.

Being a scuba diver and love everything underwater, I was quite jealous of his encounters!

We even got our books signed too!
