Lead by passionate, qualified educators, our ‘coastal classrooms’ provide a range of engaging, fun and authentic learning opportunities for students of all ages.

Our sessions provide hands-on learning experiences and a chance for students to build genuine connections and respect for coastal environments, teaching them to care for the biodiversity within them.
