- EnviroGrants Supports Citizen Science Projects 👨🔬
In 2016, the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland received funding for community surveying project, MangroveWatch.
The collaboration of scientists and the local community made for a fun and educational day out on the river. Data collected on shoreline conditions of various waterways within the City of Logan provide insight for effective shoreline management and rehabilitation.

- Rugby league doesn’t get much more grassroots than the country junior version of the game, and that’s exactly what's on display this weekend at Charleville. A record 25 teams are contesting the annual Adrian Vowles Cup, coming from as far away as the Sunny Coast, Brisbane, Mt Isa and Mackay to contest U14 and U16 divisions for girls and boys.
The competition is a true western Qld success story, growing from just three teams in the inaugural 2014 derby. Now, it’s a huge shot in the arm for the local economy in an area that’s been grappling with years of drought, a great social occasion for kids and their families from across the state, and a showcase of some of the best emerging regional talent.
We're stoked to be able to support it – here’s our own Jack Winter, Duncan McNair, Les Toms, Damian Watts, Patrina Steer and Darren Driver helping to set up today with competition founder, home-grown footy star and former league international Adrian Vowles (centre).

- We’re keeping a very close eye on TC Oma and we're ready to respond, whatever the weather brings. Big winds of up to 100km/hr have already caused power interruptions in SEQ, mostly from trees and branches in lines. Crews have repaired network damage and restored power to thousands of homes and businesses in the past 24 hours, with the most-impacted areas around the Gold and Sunshine coasts, bayside areas, Ipswich and Mt Tamborine.
Everyone can help by securing any loose items around the yard that could become airborne. Also be extra vigilant for powerlines: fallen lines can be hard to see, especially in debis. Treat any line as though it’s live: stay well clear, call Energex immediately on 13 19 62 or report it to 000, and warn others. If you’ve lost power, you can report faults to 13 62 62 or keep tabs on our Outage Finder: https://bit.ly/2zZcKQw
We’ll continue to work closely with emergency services to keep our communities safe, and to manage critical infrastructure. For more on preparing for wild weather: https://bit.ly/2cDJNQe
