The Dolphin Research Education Team visited a different I SEA I CARE Ambassador council area each day last week in celebration of World Environment Week! On our second day, we visited Sawtells Inlet at Tooradin in the City of Casey. Education Director Mandy Robertson discusses the importance of this area for local tourism, but also the vital role of the surrounding mangrove habitats to provide breeding grounds for fish and birds, a buffer against storm swells, and carbon absorption. Learning about the vital role of mangrove habitats is just one part of the ISIC program to help students raise awareness about the value of environmental services, pollution issues and development of solutions. Enjoy the following clip and if you know of a school that would like to join the ISIC Ambassador Program, please ask them to contact the Education Team at Dolphin Research Institute.
