 "Sharks & Rays in the Brisbane River & Moreton Bay"

  by Professor Mike Bennett

What wondrous rays and sharks pass by the entrance to Moreton Bay, actually live in Moreton Bay or swim up the Brisbane River?’ These were the questions asked by Professor Mike Bennett back in 1994, a few years after he had arrived at the University of Queensland from the UK.

He found very few answers so, with the aid of university students, he set about finding out for himself. He is now very well informed and will share some of his fascinating knowledge and use some interesting ‘props’ to make his presentation more real. Sounds intriguing!

Professor Mike Bennett works at the University of Queensland.  He started research in 1994 into sharks and rays of Australia when he noticed that little had been looked at in the local region.  Fast-forward to now, and he has basically answered most of the questions he had, with the help of many, many PhD, honours and masters students.


Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
