How can we help kids to explore further and deeper?
We are all connected to the sea, we evolved from the sea and we as humans are starting to appreciate more of the ocean's resources. We are becoming more aware of the need for conservation, we need real Marine Protection and more education and awareness through our students and community.
We shouldn't underestimate how powerful our students are in passing on environmentally friendly messages and practices to their peers and parents - even telling their parents what they should and shouldn't be doing.
It is vitally important that our students learn about their own environment and the ways that they can protect and support it.
How many students know more about the history and environments of other countries than they do about their own backyard?
This is an ideal opportunity to get "out of the four walls' and help your students to discover. Most of us live near a creek, river, wetland, sand dunes, mangrove area, sandy shore, reef or rockpool area which all have a direct link to the sea.
