Jacobs Well and Cabbage Tree

Healthy Land and Water is working with the Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA) to replace existing block and tackle moorings located within the Gold Coast section of Moreton Bay Marine Park.22 Environmentally Friendly Moorings have recently been installed in Jacobs Well and Steiglitz (Cabbage Tree Point). Several healthy samples of seagrass have been collected directly next to the existing dead zones in Jacobs Well and Steiglitz. This is a positive sign for future seagrass recovery within these dead zones.
