Last week was National Science Week and the Education Team celebrated science with a virtual walk through the magnificent Warringine Park, located between Hastings and Bittern! Most visitors can hardly believe this area was once farmland where cattle roamed only 30 years ago! Warringine was declared a conservation park in 1994 and has been managed by the Mornington Peninsula Shire since 2006, with the aim of returning the land to its natural state. The park is divided into four sections: Coastal, Wetland, Creek and Woodland; all with their own special values. (Sorry about a couple of few windy audio moments as this was filmed only days before lockdown). There is so much to learn about this beautiful park, so take a walk with Dolphin Research Institute’s Education Director Mandy Robertson as she highlights the many values of this area, why having protected areas such as Warringine is so important, and how lucky we are to have this protected habitat right on our doorstep! If you would like to learn more about Warringine Park, and/or when it is appropriate to join the Education Team on a ramble through this gorgeous location please do not hesitate to contact Mandy Robertson at
