Beneath the bay project


The ‘Beneath the Bay’ project, funded by the Port Phillip Bay Fund and VIC DELWP, has been striving to enhance a working partnership between key members of the Victorian recreational SCUBA diving community, through the Reef Life Survey (RLS) program, and Parks Victoria.

The project aims to continue vital long-term monitoring of Port Phillip Bay marine life, including Marine National Parks and Sanctuaries, through training of local recreational divers & Parks Victoria divers in the RLS biodiversity survey methods.
The Beneath the Bay project also contributed to the development of the Reef Life Explorer (launching November 2020), and the other online, interactive data exploration tools.
