Underwater cleanups are a great way to help protect the marine environment. However, there are some special considerations when cleaning up under water, especially in fragile coral reef environments.  To make this easier for reef operators, the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) has put together these simple guidelines.

This ship sourced pollution study originated from a research program conducted by the South-East Queensland Regional Water Quality Management Strategy, a multi-agency community/industry/government partnership group. Results from previous studies and feedback from principal stakeholders such as Maritime Safety Queensland, prompted demand for a second study to investigate levels of trace metals at selected popular anchorages in eastern Moreton Bay.

This study originated from a research program conducted by the South East Queensland Regional Water Quality Management Strategy, a multi-agency community/ industry/government partnership group. The first phase of the study produced a final report on ship-sourced pollution in the Brisbane River and Moreton Bay. Imminent changes to sewage discharge regulations for recreational vessels operating in Queensland’s coastal waters and concerns about nutrients derived from sewage emissions fuelled demand for a study aimed at identifying sewage signatures from recreational and tourist vessels.

The research objective of the present project was to determine the relative impacts of disposal of human wastes on vegetation and soils in Tasmanian vegetation types that occur in areas used for wild country camping, with particular emphasis on the impact of digging, the impact of nutrient accessions, the persistence of  paper products, such as tissues, and the disturbance of burials by native animals.
