Sea Turtle Foundation supported Magnetic Island’s World Oceans Day celebration on June 8. STF interns presented prizes (t-shirts and reusable water bottles) to Magnetic Island State School students for their marine conservation poster competition. With funding through the Queensland Government’s Everyone’s Environment grant program, STF also provided a cleanup kit for the school with bags, gloves, grabbers, and hand sanitizer so students can do their part to keep Magnetic Island’s waters rubbish-free!
Meanwhile, staff were also participating in the WhitFUNday celebration in Dingo Beach. Sea Turtle Foundation joined with Eco Barge Clean Seas, Australian Marine Conservation Society, and O.U.C.H. to inform visitors about marine conservation and current issues affecting the Whitsundays and greater Queensland coast. Both events were very successful and we look forward to next year!
