Summary

Cooloola Coastcare was approached by the Tin Can Bay School Prep-10 to deliver a Junior Coastcare Program during the School Year in 2014. This is was great opportunity to engender stewardship in local students and residents about the importance of the nearby Great Sandy Strait Ramsar area.

The program was delivered every Friday for two hours throughout the four terms of the school year. Five sites were selected: Mullens Saltmarsh, Tin Can Bay Foreshore, Tin Can Bay School Wetlands, Tin Can Bay Bush School Learning Trail and the Tin Can Bay School Native Gardens.

Key Learning Objectives (KLOs) delivered at each site included improving awareness and understanding of Ramsar Wetland and Wallum ecosystems. On-ground activities, such as public access management, weed ID and removal, native flora ID, monitoring, planting and shorebird ID were carried out in order to meet the learning objectives.

The five sites were selected for their natural and cultural value and suitability for safe access. Coastcare was also involved in three public events to promote the GSS Ramsar Wetlands.
