Seeking Ambassadors for CoralWatch

CoralWatch are opening up a workshop for teachers and students (15+yrs) wanting to do their part in keeping track of the health of our corals. We all know there are threats, would you like to be part of the solution?

There is a Teacher Professional Development workshop 13-14 May (Keppel) for senior science, marine, geography teachers. The PD Includes lectures, hands-on and field activities as well as NEW curriculum linked materials for grade 7 and aquatic practices.

Following that there will be a full on CoralWatch Ambassador workshop 24-28 May on Heron Island. Applications are open until March 28 and Ambassadors will be trained to help run events, collect data, visit schools and other outreach activities, helping the core staff and more important our wonderful reef on a voluntary basis.

This invitation is extended to teachers as well as grade 11-12 students (who need to be 15yrs +QLD based only). Students may find that this will be a way to enhance their resume with gained skills and experience while having the enjoyment of being involved in marine conservation.
