Citizen Science Dive!
First of a regular dive monitoring (photos/videos/count) the Weedy Seadragon population at the North end of Blackmans Bay.

Citizen surveys are to observe, count (for abundance) and photograph the dragons. The aim is to: (1) Measure abundance of Seadragons at different localities and how it changes over time (2) Monitor individual Seadagons to learn how far they move, and when they hold eggs.

We’ll provide an info brief of what to do and how the data is used after its collected.
If the weather is not in our favour, we will relocate to south end.
