Moreton Bay Regional Council ‘CoastSnap’

How would you like to become a citizen-scientist and help monitor and respond to erosion? Then Moreton Bay CoastSnap may be of interest to you, it’s as simple as “see it, snap it, share it”.                                                                                             

Our coastal environments are continually changed by storms, tides and other natural processes that impact beaches, landscapes, wildlife and habitats. Coastal change can happen slowly or it can be very fast. With CoastSnap, local residents & visitors can collect high quality data, from fixed stations to monitor and measure changing shoreline conditions. The photos shared by you and other members of the community can help Council to monitor and manage changes to our beaches. CoastSnap stations can be found at various places on the peninsula and beyond e.g. Bongaree Jetty, Queens Beach Scarborough, Redcliffe Jetty & Suttons Beach.

Simply place your phone in the metal cradle at each site, snap a photo of the coastline and share it using the free App “See it, Snap It, Share It”
