Celebrating World Wetlands Day what great start to 2020!!
What a great start to the school term, and so closely following World Wetlands Day wondering through the magnificent Warringine Park in Hastings with Billanook College followed by St Margaret’s School and Berwick Grammar School! The students had a great time emerging themselves in nature whilst developing a better understanding of the importance of coastal wetlands and the significance of Warringine Park as a listed Ramsar site, with over 110 bird species that visit or reside in this beautiful wetland. Students also gained an in-depth understanding of the importance of mangrove ecosystems as a carbon sink, habitat, and as a protective buffer against fires, tides and storms in an increasingly changing climate.
