Our values:

We are honest.

TMBF is independent and non-partisan. We draw on the considerable capabilities of our community to accurately and openly represent knowledge and challenges facing Moreton Bay.

We are courageous.

Moreton Bay faces a range of direct and indirect pressures from human use. TMBF will always stand up, first, for our magnificent coastal and marine environment.

We are respectful.

Our coastal and marine backyard contributes to the lifestyles and livelihoods of people in South-east Queensland and further afield. We value and respect the diverse needs, aspirations and knowledge held by all those with whom we work, including Traditional Owners.
