August saw some awesome educational events happening in Brisbane, and as ever our amazing team of ambassadors were there to educate and empower.
On the weekend of 16-18 August, over 4000 people attended Brisbane Science Festival at South Bank.
Reef Check ambassadors raised awareness of the incredible marine diversity found on Brisbane’s doorstep in Moreton Bay and discussed ways that everybody can help protect the ocean, no matter where they live.
We were inspired by the number of young STEM enthusiasts and budding marine biologists we met over the weekend who were excited to tell us about the actions they are already taking to protect the planet!
Meanwhile, the University of Queensland hosted ‘Trash free Tuesday’ over at their St Lucia Campus during sustainability week.
The event brought attention to the range of sustainable choices each and every one of us can make in our daily lives to minimise waste.
Reef Check Ambassadors chatted with staff and students about how to ditch the plastic habit and how to get involved in community clean up and awareness events in SE QLD. We hope to see everyone again soon at one of our local Coast to Coral events.
Thanks to the Queensland Government Citizen Science Grant for supporting our work in this area.
