Tangalooma EcoMarines offer a FREE primary and high school school program for schools based in southeast Queensland, where each school appoints a support crew teacher and four student EcoMarines ambassadors to lead various environmental activities or ‘challenges’ within the school and community.
CoralWatch is part of this program and offers the CoralWatch Challenge to primary and high school students. The challenge is: ‘Educate younger students in the school about coral and how they can help protect the corals in Moreton Bay’. Participating schools will receive a CoralWatch Challenge pack, which includes free Coral Health Charts donated by Australian Coastal and Marine Ecology / Coastal Protection Core (ACME/CPC). Other materials included are colouring in pages, data sheets, year 1 lesson plan, Moreton Bay virtual reef poster, CoralWatch stickers and some give away brochures. The Ambassadors will design posters about Coral Reefs, Colours and Shapes on the Reef, CoralWatch, and How can you help reefs? These posters will be presented in class and the ambassadors will lead the year 1 colouring in activity including in class data collection with the Coral Health Chart.
