Our ‘What’s Under the Water’ project is coming to life!
So exciting!!! Our ‘What’s under the water’ pool snorkeling project was tested in the Lakes Entrance pool in early September. This project was funded through a Coastcare Grant and will raise awareness about the impacts of marine litter and build an appreciation and stewardship for our marine environment.
Fish models are placed on a seascape background of kelp and seagrasses and then placed in the pool. Students then snorkel along and document what fish and marine litter they see on an underwater slate. This activity is also complemented by an in-class session, as well as a beach litter clean up.
We are just working on the finishing touches with the aim to start delivery in term 1, 2020. If your school is interested in participating, please get in touch!
