CELEBRATING NATIONAL WATER WEEK 18-24th of October with Jess who tells us all about her accidental frog pond!
At Dolphin Research Institute we are passionate about raising awareness to protect our waterways through research and education activities! We conduct a range of education programs including litter pathways, freshwater invertebrate identification, and water quality testing to teach students how to assess and protect the health of our waterways.
Featured in this video link is our very own Education Officer Jess, who is an expert on all things freshwater: http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WNtXl5LIIU

See below for a little bit more about National Water Week from the hosts the Australian Water Association.
“Every third week of October, the Australian Water Association organises National Water Week and makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to build awareness around the value of water. Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely.
The #NWW2021 theme this year is Caring for water and Country, this celebrates the vital and cultural role that water plays in our lives. Recognising the importance water plays in our lives, Caring for water and Country aims to deepen our understanding of Australian First Nations people’s knowledge in protecting and sustaining our water and lands for over 65,000 years.”
