How environmentally friendly moorings work
Healthy Land and Water coordinates the recovery of seagrass in identified priority areas by working with mooring owners to replace existing block and tackle moorings with environmentally friendly moorings. Healthy Land and Water works in close consultation with State Agencies, Traditional Owners, community groups, and the boating community.
There are currently two EFM designs available, the Seagrass Friendly Mooring design and the Enviro Mooring design. Both designs use a shock absorber apparatus that ensures watercraft are safely secured to the seabed and prevents chains from dragging on the sea floor.
