Project name UniDive Point Lookout Ecological Assessment Marine Conservation
Project description
The aim of the project is to repeat the 2001 ecological assessment of the Point Lookout (North Stradbroke Island) marine environment using a community-based, cost-effective, scientifically sound survey program. At each site, transect surveys will be conducted to assess the populations of fish, invertebrates, coral state, bottom type and impacts.

Five transect sites will be used: two at Flat Rock, two at Shag Rock and one at Manta Bommie. Detailed maps of Shag Rock and Manta Bommie will be created. Photos and video will be acquired to document the species found at these locations.

Dataset name UniDive Point Lookout Ecological Assessment Marine Conservation
Dataset description
Off the coast of Point Lookout (Stradbroke Island, Queensland) lie a number of rocky reef systems that support and attract a diverse range of marine flora and fauna, as well as recreational and commercial activities such as fishing and SCUBA diving. These activities along with environmental impacts such as floods may be affecting the ecological health of the area. This study will assess the health of these systems in comparison to a similar study carried out in 2001.
