That’s a Wrap! Merry Christmas!
As the festive season approaches, it’s time to extend a heartfelt Merry Christmas to the dedicated Fishcare Volunteers who have made a significant impact throughout the year. These tireless individuals have not only shared their passion for fishing but have also played a crucial role in promoting responsible fishing practices.
Over the past 6 months, the Fishcare Volunteers have outdone themselves, conducting an impressive 205 responsible fishing workshops. These workshops, which reached a remarkable 3780 participants, have been instrumental in educating the community about sustainable fishing techniques and the importance of preserving our aquatic ecosystems for future generations.
The impact of these workshops has been further amplified through 42 school events. By engaging with students, the Fishcare Volunteers have instilled a sense of environmental stewardship in the younger generation, ensuring that the principles of responsible fishing continue to be passed down.
In addition to the school events, there have been 102 community events. These events have brought together people from all walks of life, fostering a sense of community and shared responsibility towards our natural resources. They have been an excellent platform for spreading awareness and encouraging more people to adopt sustainable fishing practices.
Moreover, the Fishcare Volunteers have shown incredible inclusivity by organising 36 all-ability events. These events have ensured that everyone, regardless of their physical abilities, has the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the joys of fishing. This inclusive approach underlines the commitment of the volunteers to make fishing an activity that everyone can enjoy and appreciate.
Lastly, the 25 school holiday ‘come try fishing’ events have been a resounding success. These events have provided a fun and educational way for kids to spend their holidays, engaging them in outdoor activities while teaching them the basics of fishing and the importance of doing it responsibly.
The dedication and hard work of the Fishcare Volunteers have not only promoted responsible fishing but have also created lasting memories and learning experiences for all participants. As we celebrate this festive season, let’s take a moment to appreciate and thank these incredible volunteers for their invaluable contribution to our community and the environment. Merry Christmas to all the Fishcare Volunteers, and here’s to another successful year ahead!
