On Wednesday the 17th March, the Grade 2s went to visit the Rockpools as part of our Inquiry into the Marine Environment. It was a sunny afternoon and students were lucky enough to find crabs, sea urchins, star fish and a giant elephant snail in the rockpool ramble!
We learnt that there is a Marine Sanctuary in our local area that is protected and no one is allowed to fish there to protect our Marine wildlife.
A huge threat to our Marine Life is Rubbish, particularly plastic bags as animals mistake them for food and they cannot break it down in their stomachs. We are working on using borrow and bring back bags and taking plastic home with us when we find it on our beaches. We hope this will prevent litter and improve the safety of our local marine wild life.
