Dr Ruth Webley

Ruth generously donates her time and expertise to TMBF by writing eye-catching and informative posts on our social media sites, raising awareness of the Bay’s values and the challenges it faces.

Having grown up on the New Zealand coast, Ruth came to Moreton Island for a working holiday in her 20’s and never left the Bay area!
She completed her PhD at Griffith University, assessing the effects of increasing urbanisation on estuarine plants and animals around southeast Queensland.

Ruth values the rich diversity of life in the Bay and the opportunity it offers people to learn about the important ecological connection between land and sea.

Thank you Ruth for helping TMBF raise awareness and create an informed community willing to take action to protect the health of the Bay.
