FORESHORE EROSION

The Project demonstrated that growing beaches by planting on dunes and protecting them from pedestrian traffic is the most cost-effective and successful foreshore management practice in erosion prevention.

NEW TOURISM

As part of its longer-term vision, BIEPA is pursuing the concept of a vibrant “Discovery Centre” to inform residents, school students and visitors about Bribie’s environment and how it can be enjoyed while protecting its fragile eco-system.

OCEAN BEACH PROTECTION

BIEPA has been lobbying for at least a considerable permanent reduction in the number of permits issued and for better observance by drivers of the rules set out with the permits, together with education on the damage unlimited use of the beach as a highway is doing to its fragile, and internationally protected, eco-system.

TREE AND VEGETATION PROTECTION

The Vegetation Sub-Committee aims to increase public awareness of the importance of the range and diversity of our natural vegetation types. It was formed because of the alarm we all felt over the lack of legislation to protect our natural assets.

TURTLE MONITORING

Throughout the year, turtle monitors respond to calls from the public concerning stranded, sick or dead turtles.  If the turtle is still alive, they arrange for its transport to the Wildlife Hospital.  Data on all the incidents attended is reported to the Marine Strandings office at QPWS.

WATER MONITORING

BIEPA has a team of trained citizen scientists that regularly monitor the condition of our local freshwater catchments and marine waterways including the southern end of Pumicestone Passage, testing water quality and entering the information in a dedicated data base.
