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!

Sheridan Rabbitt is the Station Assistant at Moreton Bay Research station, where she gets to introduce hundreds of young people to the wonders of Moreton Bay.

But she also conducts research of her own, and we talked about two of her studies. The first is about seahorses and pipefish in Moreton Bay, and why we have to watch the seaweed very carefully! And the  second, fascinating study is about women in small scale fisheries in the Pacific, and how management misses the boat when they don't consider their catch and their expertise. How might this be reflected in Moreton Bay? Sheridan explains, and I'd love to hear your thoughts, so send me a message!
