AusOcean is focused on solving technical problems relating to marine habitat monitoring and habitat restoration, currently with a geographical focus on southern Australia.
In partnership with The University of Adelaide and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Australia, we are 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.
In partnership with Estuary Care Foundation, we are monitoring seagrass health and water quality in the Barker Inlet, just north of Port Adelaide. Read more about it here.
At Smith Bay, Kangaroo Island we are currently conducting extensive marine life surveys and trialling new underwater camera technology. In partnership with Kangaroo Island Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch we plan to also monitor Cetacean activity. 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 interested in learning about new projects. Please contact us if you believe you have a project of interest.
