RICKETTS POINT I SEA I CARE WORKSHOP FUN IN THE SUN!
We had a fabulous day for our catchup workshop for our Casey, Mornington Peninsula and Melbourne Ambassadors at the beautiful Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary! We began the day with a rockpool ramble, and the Ambassadors had a fantastic time looking for flatworms, urchins, crabs, seastars and more!!
After morning tea it was on to a seagrass session where we delved into the microscopic world of seagrass and Ambassadors were amazed at the variety of life that exists within our essential seagrass habitats!
Ambassadors then raced each other during the sand-sort session to identify and source the different marine debris items buried in the sand tubs. We followed up with a lively discussion about the issues and solutions to the marine debris found on our beaches.
We finished off the day with a whale identification activity and a climate change game where Ambassadors raced each other to identify the top global per capita polluters and the huge and often unnecessary waste involved in our food production!
Ambassadors now have a much deeper understanding of the importance of this special marine sanctuary and the actions, small and large that we can all take to reduce our waste and ensure a more positive environmental future!
