Schools and Community Groups to Work Together in Coastal Conservation

28 March, 2011

Michael Julian, Executive Director of the Australian Marine Environment Protection Association (AUSMEPA) has announced the release of a ground breaking marine environment and coastal conservation education program for schools and local communities, freely available on the AUSMEPA website athttp://www.ausmepa.org.au/student-leadership/

The program, titled Student Leadership for Coastal Conservation Projects, was developed from a $26,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Caring for Our Country, Community Coastcare project.

The education program will help students plan their next innovative projects with community or local partners; it contains a full communication tool kit to help students undertake local community education projects.

The website provides specific advice for schools wanting to initiate habitat restoration. Students are advised about methods for creating digital photographic libraries of their local environment that can have conservation applications in the future.

Community groups are provided with help and advice on how best to work with schools and students. It also asks community groups to think outside the box and ask students to help them run their public education program.

The leadership program is designed around helping students identify a coastal conservation project either independently or with a partner. It has a wide range of planning tools to help students understand the necessary stages that they need to address when planning the project. Throughout their project, students will develop their leadership skills.
