The Gateway Upgrade North (GUN) project is working to restore and protect seagrass habitats in Moreton Bay, which play a critical ecological role as habitat and nursery for young fish, dugongs and sea turtles.

In collaboration with Healthy Land and Water, the GUN project is providing funding for 115 Environmentally Friendly Moorings to replace old style boat anchor points, which use chains that drag on the ocean floor. The new moorings use an innovative ‘screw pile’ and floating line ‘tether’, which will allow the seagrass to regenerate.
