Community Events

About Our Events

MMF believes that effective communication is the key to long term change and conservation impact, with the community having a strong role to play. We have had a presence at various markets and festivals across Victoria, including the Main Street Mornington Festival, Sandringham Village Festival and the International Boat Show.

MMF understand that no one person has the solution to conservation, protection and awareness and are actively involved with numerous other collaborative events that share similar ethics, goals and outcomes. MMF has been a part of Clean up Australia, Seal the Loop Action Days and Beach Patrol clean-up events.

Communication of our applied research outcomes have been delivered through community events such as National Science Week, Environment and Marine Careers Expos, various community group and Rotary meetings and AGMs, CoastCare Summer by the Sea programs and coastal ecology workshops, Women In Science Breakfast…just to name a few.
