We have established a new social enterprise on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands – Running Wild Outdoors, led by our Conservation Team and offering inclusive ecotourism and nature-based experiences, such as accessible native flora and wildlife walks and accessible kayaking tours.

Two cohorts, each of six people with disabilities from across our four islands, helped design and pilot these experiences, and the enterprise continues to employ past Conservation Cadets and to offer invaluable experience for future participants in Running Wild’s other training and employment programs.

A taster of our tours to come are launching at the 2022 Tide Festival, running Friday 23rd September – Monday 3rd October 2022.
