We recently commissioned a third party researcher to survey 1,000 Australian adults. Part of the research found that 76 per cent of Aussies don’t know that stormwater is the biggest source of plastic pollution is in the world’s oceans. With knowledge comes power to change so educating Australians on the health of their oceans is a key focus area for Ocean Protect.
We’re partnering with Keep Australia Beautiful NSW in 2019 to help deliver an education module titled Keeping Waterways Clean to NSW schools. By 2022, we will have helped most schools in Australia to have access to marine conservation education resources.
In 2020 we partnered with Eco Educate. Eco Educate works with primary and secondary schools across the country to deliver quality, curriculum-aligned education focused on empowering staff and students as environmental leaders.
