Club Meeting November - Port Phillip Reef Restoration

Event information

This event has passed.

Hi Club Members & Guests,

I hope the diving has been great for you all over the past 4 weeks. The November Club meeting is forming. 


This month's guest speaker is Simon Branigan from The Nature Conservancy.

Up to 50% of Port Phillip Bays seafloor was once dominated by shellfish reefs. Due historical overharvesting, coastal pollution and disease these reefs almost disappeared. The Nature Conservancy Australia (TNC’s) has been embarking on an ambitious project to brings these reefs back from the brink of extinction. Simon Branigan will share the progress that TNC have made with the 12 hectares of shellfish reefs restored since 2017, the exciting monitoring results and upcoming restoration plans.


Following the presentation will be the photo competition, events, news and travel.
