This activity provides a great opportunity to explore...

and discover the wonders of what our oceans leave washed up in their wake.

After identifying what we have found, we will simply classify the items we have found, discovering what things are related to what – you may be a little surprised with the result.

We also look at the impact that humans have on the beach – not only the rubbish that we leave behind, but also how we change the coastal environment. We will investigate the types of marine debris found on the beach, where it comes from and how it affects the local marine life.

Note: This activity takes place on nearby Hillarys beach. Please contact us if you would like us to assist you in your ‘Assessing the Environment’.

Cost: $5.00 per student
