Ecodivers conducts a range of projects, self initiated or in support of specific research or data collection.
Some ongoing projects include monitoring seagrass in several key areas, removal of fishing debris and man-made objects from Cabbage Tree Bay Acquatic Reserve (CTBAR), inspection of beach and swimming enclosure nets to record bi-catch and release live animals.
Providing a response, photographic and video evidence of illegal fishing activity for forwarding to relevant authorities. Removal of invasive species (Caulerpa Taxifolia) and recording of specific items of marine debris (Bait Bags / Soy Fish / Balloons / Cigarette Butts).
Last summer [if you could call it that] we compared fish species diversity within a marine protected area against other areas, with a result of 5 to 6 times the variety of species in the aquatic reserve as well as far greater size range and biomass within those species.
