Water

As long as I can remember, nature has inspired me to be curious, grateful and compassionate. I feel a sense of responsibility to give something back. I now do that through my roles with ReefCheck Australia and Great Barrier Reef Citizen Science Alliance.

Project Stage - Current
Living in the suburbs of Melbourne, it’s tempting to think of the environment as something that exists “out there”, beyond the city. So what can people living on a block of land in a typical housing subdivision do to improve the environment?

Project Stage - Current
We are seeking suggestions, advice and research on potential on-use options for mixed plastics. We are also keen to work with collaborators to trial potential solutions.

Project Stage - Planned

Reef Check Australia citizen scientists visit survey sites annually, recording a snapshot of what is happening on that reef to create long-term trend information that identify changes in reef health to share with the community.

Project Stage - Current
The Jim Donald Parklands Integrated Stormwater System project is a truly unique, creative, innovative and sustainable demonstration of best practice stormwater management within an urban environment. The project comprises a multi-functional asset that provides flood mitigation, stormwater quality improvement, stormwater harvesting, new irrigated sports fields and open space integration within the surrounding area.
