Jaragun partnered with Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC) as part of the MangroveWatch citizen science program to collect data on the habitat condition along 17Km of shoreline and riverbank from Russell Heads through the lower section of the Russell River. Jaragun staff received training as part of this baseline survey, enabling Jaragun to undertake independent monitoring long-term. A technical report will rate the health, biodiversity, density and overall condition of mangrove habitat, and identify banks exposed to erosion for future management.
