AusOcean is focused on solving technical problems relating to marine habitat monitoring and habitat restoration, currently with a geographical focus on southern Australia.
Our first project, in partnership with The University of Adelaide and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Australia, involves designing and building an underwater sensor network to monitor Windara Reef, a shellfish reef restoration project on Yorke Peninsula, South Australia. Read more about it here.
Our second project, in partnership with Estuary Care Foundation, involves monitoring seagrass health and water quality in the Barker Inlet, just north of Port Adelaide. Read more about it here.
Network Blue is our student-led citizen-science program. Currently we are working directly with a select number of schools to trial the concept.
AusOcean is currently investigating a seagrass monitoring project and others.
