Brampton Island Teachers Trip August 2013

By September 2, 2013 August 24th, 2017 Education, Great Barrier Reef Islands

Wild Mob headed out to the Tropical Island for the day to showcase our conservation and education work to teachers from 6 different Mackay High Schools.

On both the outward and return journey we were greeted by migrating Humpback whales, tail slapping the water and making their presence known. During our intertidal reef walk, Wild Mob Project Leader Amanda managed to spot a couple the weird and wonderful sea hares, and upon our return bush walk to the jetty, we were escorted by hundreds of beautiful blue tiger butterflies.

The trip was organised as part of a new program we are hoping to launch next year, offering Mackay’s high schools an education program that is fully aligned to the Marine Science Syllabus and also helps to protect local beaches, islands and underwater environment – aimed to help the Mackay community to support its young people while also protecting its precious coastal environments.
