We need your help to restore rainforests and rookeries on Avoid Island Nature Refuge!
WildMob and Reef Catchments are teaming up again to target invasive vegetation in critically endangered littoral rainforest, and plastics on turtle nesting beaches across several islands in the Cumberland Group.
We’ll be heading to Avoid Island Nature Refuge owned by friends of WildMob’s Queensland Trust for Nature’s (QTFN)
Avoid Island is home to one of Queensland’s largest Flatback turtle rookeries as well as critically endangered beach scrub rainforest, that with a little help, could be free of invasive vegetation and thrive again.
As well as removing and treating invasive vegetation we’ll also be targeting marine plastics accumulating on the islands beaches. Plastics circulating in our oceans are having devastating impacts on a wide range of marine species. Avoid Island is one of the biggest rookeries for Flatback turtles on the Queensland coast. QTFN, WildMob and Reef Catchments are all working together to ensure the island is in the best possible shape for Australia’s endemic Flatback Turtles.
If you’re ready for an adventure then come and join the mob while we explore and restore Avoid Island’s ecosystems.
