The next steps for Project Restore will be conducting baseline monitoring. This involves our RA’s in the field on SCUBA assessing current habitat degradation, running biodiversity transects and deploying remote underwater cameras to create baseline assessments of the chosen locations.
The team has also been out at local community events providing information about the project, the benefits of seascape restoration and how this initiative will enhance their local swimming areas in the long term.
Initial sampling at all locations around Sydney Harbour is scheduled to begin soon, so watch this space! In the meantime you can find out more about Project Restore and donate to this project here.
