Daryl McPhee and Moreton Bay
The south-east Queensland region is currently experiencing the most rapid urbanisation in Australia.
This growth in human population, industry and infrastructure puts pressure on the unique and diverse natural environment of Moreton Bay.
Much loved by locals and holiday-goers, Moreton Bay is also an important biogeographic region because its coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangroves and saltmarshes provide a suitable environment for both tropical and temperate species.
The Bay supports a large number of species of global conservation significance, including marine turtles, dugongs, dolphins, whales and migratory shorebirds, which use the area for feeding or breeding.
Daryl McPhee is Associate Professor of Environmental Science at Bond University.
