Almost 150 guests joined TMBF for a Day on the Bay recently. Hosted by Board Chair Rob Siganto, the day commenced for some with a trip across the Bay in classic Moreton Bay Cruisers South Pacific 2 and Bali Hai.
Guests were treated to a tour of the Moreton Bay Research Station, a moving Welcome to Country by Quandamooka man Josh Walker and a sumptuous lunch of sustainably harvested local seafood. The perfect weather and wonderful location provided the ideal backdrop to share information and knowledge about the importance of ensuring a sustainable future for Moreton Bay – the core purpose of The Moreton Bay Foundation.
From cultural heritage and sustainable seafood, to TMBF funded research projects, the value of oyster reef restoration and the Bay through the eyes of renowned artist Ralph Wilson, enthusiasm abounded. The Day on the Bay is set to be a feature in the calendar annually.
A definite highlight of the day was innovative introductions to the migratory birds of Moreton Bay – the Bar Tailed Godwits and Eastern Curlews made a few new fans. Our thanks are extended to all who attended and contributed, and for the generous donations and support received for a Brighter Future for Moreton Bay.
