About BeachTeach

BeachTeach provides you with a fantastic opportunity to learn and teach about all things marine. Rather than focusing on negative human impacts, we focus on what can be achieved when individuals experience the underwater world for themselves and take action to protect it.

We have a range of programs and services available to schools and other organisations. These include:

  • Touch Tank We have a selection of live animals to use for our education programs. These are local rockpool creatures collected under permit.
  • Marine Biologist Talk Tailored presentations on various topics such as Sustainable Seafood, Oceans & Human Health, Marine Food Webs, and Sharks.
  • School & Child Care Programs BeachTeach have a range of curriculum based programs for students of all ages - Pre-School to Senior Science & Geography.
  • Community Events Public presentations, activities for kids, touch tanks. We take away the barrier between people and marine environments.

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. Ryunosuke Satoro.

Consider the Impacts

Be aware of the species of seafood that are threatened from overfishing, as well as the most destructive types of fishing. When you’re next buying groceries, choose seafood that has been caught sustainably.

Consider the Source

Buy locally caught seafood where possible. Generally, Australian fisheries are more regulated and sustainable than many others. By supporting local fisheries and letting the industry know you want more sustainable seafood, you can make a big difference.

Consider the Climate

Marine ecosystems are very susceptible to even slight temperature changes, and therefore climate change. Possibly more importantly, climate change causes an increase in ocean water acidity. The acidic water breaks down Calcium Carbonate, or at least makes it very difficult for animals and plants to make it. Think of how many sea creatures there are with hard skeletons and shells! Who would’ve thought choosing green energy and driving your car less would help our oceans?!
