Dozens of enthusiastic children were shown by DRI’s educators, Mandy and Jacqui, some of what it takes to be a junior ranger at Point Leo during the Easter break.
From identifying whales from their tails and dolphins from their dorsal fins, to discovering what lives in seagrass – the young campers from Point Leo could see how important the marine environment is, and how important it is to protect it.
The digital microscopes revealed all sorts of creatures living amongst the seagrass, from tiny snails to a surprised pipefish! The show and tell at the end got the parents thinking as well – and yes, sharks can have eggs.
