Before we took the group photo, some of us were a little distracted by a sea eagle flying over the shore. There's lots of amazing wildlife that depend on seagrass meadows, not just marine life!

Tape seagrass here, although the coverage is not very high, the blades are nice and long.
Alligator pipefish and it looks exactly like Tape seagrass!
seahorse and other marine life. More about what we saw in the links below.
Garlic bread' sea cucumber (Holothuria scabra) - my foot is next to it for scale. That's good to see as these sea cucumbers are believed to play an important role in the health of seagrasses.
Noble volute laying eggs. We also enjoyed the much needed and appreciated snacks that Andy so kindly bought for us!
have fun 'helping' me with the wash up!
Thanks to Collin from NParks for accompanying us and taking care of some of the new ones. Also to Rachel for arranging all the logistics which went smoothly. My special thanks to the veteran volunteers who turned up to help with a particularly large batch of first timers, and keeping count, and keeping track of the equipment, and all the myriad little things that needed to get done. And special thanks from all of us to Andy for treating us to much appreciated snacks!
The Team is taking a break in December, but monitoring resumes in January. There's already lots of sign up for the first trip in 2012! So do sign up before the places are all taken up!
