The Reef Citizen Science and Leadership Workshop brought together people to learn about different citizen science techniques and how to use them practically around the reefs. The most valuable aspect of the trip for me, was taking the time to step out of the day-to-day life with like-minded people and be reminded together of how lucky we are. We only have a limited number of days on this planet, so take these opportunities to appreciate our situation, enjoy the beautiful environment we have here in Australia and try to give something back.
Reef Ecologic continued their work engaging Indigenous youth from the region hosting 13 students from Trinity Bay College, Cairns in our Reef Resilience Workshop and Clean Up. 13 Students and 3 Clontarf Foundation coordinators joined us for the morning conducting a marine debris clean up along the shores of Cleveland Bay at Pallarenda beach.
