On September 15, Reef Check Australia is holding an underwater photo shootout and fundraising event. We’re headed out to Flinders Reef in beautiful Moreton Bay with Natutilus Scuba Centre for 2 dives, as part of the Underwater Festival. If you know anyone in the SEQ area who might be keen to join, then please feel free to share!
"As part of GVI’s mission we are always looking for a way to increase student’s environmental awareness and knowledge of global conservation issues. Marine debris is a global problem with local solutions, and a local problem with global solutions. Together we must work together to tackle the marine debris problem and seek solutions at each end of the spectrum."
WALK FOR THOUGHT: W.H.A.L.E will be having their first booth there with educational materials, free stuff, snacks and also come sign the PROJECT AWARE petition and help the sharks! We want to spread awareness about sharks and whales and make sure people can learn and have a better appreciation for them!
During 2011, Brendon Sing worked his way across Asia, speaking with international schools, national environmental conferences and learning institutes about the importance of shark species, why they’re in trouble and what we can do about it.
In October 2011, after visiting many schools in Bangkok and Thailand, Brendon Sing embarked in a UK Tour and launched his Shark Guardian campaign in the UK.
