Cassowary Coast

With strong community support, we have been working in the Cassowary Coast since February 2017.  Our project has completed releases in Stage 1 around Innisfail, Flying Fish Point, the Coconuts, Belvedere, Wangan, Mundoo, Mourilyan and South Johnstone.

From mid May, Stage 2 will commence when we will be releasing in Tully, Mission Beach and El Arish.

Mission Beach State School is participating in our Wolbachia Warrior program which teaches students about life cycles and the control of mosquito-borne diseaes like dengue and Zika. Students learn to make scientific observations, record results, and experience how science can contribute to global issues
