MEDIA RELEASE: Ocean Life Education blends science with humour for Holiday Programs

Ocean Life Education is blending science with humour these school holidays offering fun marine education programs to Outside School Hours Care centres across the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane regions.

With a strong focus on pollution and how humans affect the environment, Ocean Life Education offers an exciting learning experience that will leave children with a greater sense of ownership and understanding to protect our natural marine environment.

Director of Education, Richard Coward, says Ocean Life Education’s Holiday Programs are a great way for all age groups to learn about relevant issues whilst having a fun and interactive experience.

“We create our vacation care programs with all age groups in mind so each child can have an enjoyable and memorable experience.

“These Spring holidays we’re offering our Human Impacts program which covers topical issues such as plastics pollution and micro plastics, land clearing and over fishing and the impacts these have on our marine life and their environment,” Richard said.

The Human Impacts program educates children on how everyday practices such as correct waste disposal and recycling can protect marine life and reduce our impacts such as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

“It’s fantastic to see so many Outside School Hours Care centres across South East Queensland incorporating environmental education and the ocean into their program calendars”.

Ocean Life Education has been established on the Sunshine Coast for over eight years bringing live creatures from the ocean into the school and early learning environment.

Children get up close and touch live marine animals such as sea stars, sea urchins, baby sharks and fresh water turtles and are fascinated by how these animals function and what part they play in our oceans and waterways.
