A new school year means a chance to learn more about our local wetlands!
WRM consultant Alexis Mann visited St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ school to talk about all things freshwater. As part of the lesson the kids learnt about wetlands in Perth, why they’re important, what lives in and around them, what’s impacting them, and what invasive species are. As part of the visit the students also took part in our interactive ‘bug-hunt’ where they had to find and identify all the fascinating invertebrates that live in our wetlands.
It’s so important to teach the youth of today about the environment, and specifically the importance of our wetlands. WRM is taking steps to ensure that everyone has the chance to learn about the fascinating biodiversity that we have in our wetlands in Perth, and that they have the opportunities available to them to continue their learning after graduating.
WRM has participated in similar outreach events previously, assisting with student days at Scitech and similar learning activities at various schools in Perth.
