Noosa River Volunteer Rangers

The Volunteer River Rangers venture out onto the river weekly to carry out water testing, clean ups or assist in erosion, seagrass or mangrove monitoring.

They also educate the public about the values of healthy rivers, the role of NICA and current river  regulations.

If you care about the Noosa River and love going out on the river (say once a month), join our rangers’ team.

We are especially in need of people with a boat license and experience in outboard motor boat operations, but it is not a requirement.

Noosa River Seagrass Watch

Seagrass is a useful bio-indicator used to assess river health. Data collected is used by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and local NRM groups, and is also submitted to Seagrass Watch HQ (Cairns) and included in a world wide database.

Boats, kayaks, lifejackets and monitoring kit are provided. You will be trained in the methodology during your first monitoring round.

Bushland Care Volunteering

Spring fed Sunshine Creek, a special wildlife habitat and corridor needs rehabilitation by removing feral weeds & replacing them with native plants.

We propose a once monthly, 2.5 hour community working bee.

NICA received a Federal Govt 25th Anniversary Landcare Grant to pay contractors to work on the steep creek banks, but we need local community assistance with the other areas.

It is a bit daunting, but unless we start, we will lose what is special for us and critical for the wildlife.

Learn as you go, We have tools, gloves, tubs and plants.

Sunshine Creek supports a great variety of birds including endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos, 5 species of vulnerable frogs, native fish, baby eels (elvers), butterflies and marsupials.
