Welcome to the Moreton Bay Online Podcast. 

On this show, I interview the people who live around Moreton Bay, and discover what they love about it, how they came to be here, and how they interact with it.

Moreton Bay is special to all of us, for a huge number of reasons, and sharing those reasons with each other is one way we can build community and coastal capacity - and promote custodianship so that our bay stays beautiful and productive for the generations to come.

This research, the podcast, and the Moreton Bay Online social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, have been supported by the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, and Innovation, through an Advance Queensland grant. We are very grateful for their support!
