Every year, more than 25,000 humpback whales pass through the Moreton Bay Region on their annual migration to the warmer, tropical waters of north-east Queensland. There, they will breed and make their way back down, once again passing our shores, this time, with their offspring in tow.
This year we will welcome the whales with a new Welcome to the Whales activation at Redcliffe KiteFest.
Participate in educational and environmental activities, sand sculptures and, of course, the ‘Whale wishes’ ceremony, where patrons can place a pebble on the gorgeous sand sculpture to wish safe passage to all whales entering Moreton Bay waters.
CoralWatch Ambassador Maria Bavins will present about CoralWatch and Corals in the Moreton Bay on Saturday and Sunday. At our display you see our virtual reef and clay corals display, and enjoy learning more about corals and test yourknowledge with our Moreton Bay marine life quiz.
CoralWatch is organising this event in collaboration with by Australian Coastal and Marine Ecology
