Help kids find beauty

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY schools are on a wait­ing list to dis­cover the beauty of their own marine backyard and could be left dis­ap­pointed with­out lo­cal sup­port.

High school stu­dents are lucky enough to live near one of the most stun­ning marine en­vi­ron­ments in the world.

Un­for­tu­nately the cost to get out and about and learn more about the ecosys­tem and won­der of the Great Bar­rier Reef can be pro­hib­i­tive.

Now lo­cal busi­nesses are be­ing in­vited to spon­sor a stu­dent to make sure young marine-lovers can get hands-on out on the wa­ter, reef and is­lands as part of the marine class­room pro­gram. The pro­gram was set up in 2014, when Wild Mob and Reef Catch­ments joined forces to of­fer a learn­ing ad­ven­ture for lo­cal high school stu­dents at a sub­sidised cost. Busi­ness in­ter­ested in spon­sor­ing a stu­dent can con­tact Wild Mob via Amanda Scrivenor 0408 994 545 or Derek Ball 0400 835 895. Al­ter­na­tively, email derek@wild­mob.org or amanda@wild­mob.org.
