Focusing expertise, wisdom & enthusiasm for the benefit of Moreton Bay

Our vision is for Moreton Bay to be an international treasure, known for its excellent environmental health, biological diversity, and ecological sustainability, its innovative robust and resilient economy, and its Indigenous culture and heritage.

Moreton Bay is a unique jewel of biodiversity, cultural heritage, and aesthetic beauty; not on a local scale but on a world scale. We should all be concerned about preserving it, and the work of The Moreton Bay Foundation will give the Bay the voice it needs!

We would welcome you joining our voice in protecting Moreton Bay for current and future generations.
