A day from the 2016 Two Bays project in Western Port, teaching community groups about monitoring the health of seagrass with Parks Victoria.
Over ten years ago the Hope Vale community got together a draft for Caring for their local Sea Country. We carry it on board during the Hope Vale project, as like many reports, they can sit on shelves and often do not have a direct bearing on the community. Shaunica, who has been very involved in turtle tagging, both in her local Sea Country and further South near Bowen, found much food for thought in the plan.
Parks Victoria has been a central partner of the Two Bays project for 10 years now. Parks Vic design their own days for engaging the community with their Marine Park system in Port Phillip and Western Port Bays.
