Our monthly meetings are great opportunities for members, volunteers and curious others to catch up and hear about MCG's work and upcoming events.
This month's guest speaker is Pierre Craven, Head of Science at Mackay Christian College, who has been directing the school's senior students in their new mangrove research program.
The innovative project involves students using real-life techniques to study the carbon storage potential and biomass of mangroves in the Pioneer River.
The data collected will be sent and used by renowned mangrove ecologist, Dr Norman Duke from James Cook University, who is also the project's scientific mentor.
Can the mangroves of Mackay help fight climate change? Come along and find out!
