We are super excited to have you join the EcoMarines program as an Ambassador, Support Crew or Mini Marine! You have a very important job to do to educate and inspire your school, community and family. But first, all job's require a bit of training... Don't worry this is a fun step towards saving our marine and wildlife! 

We'll learn about wildlife, water, waste, and gardening from sponsors and supporters of EcoMarines. There are some activities and competitions at the end with prizes to be won for your school! 

We would love to stay connected with you, so please email us if you would like to organise an online meeting with your EcoMarines team!

Good luck and welcome to Team EcoMarines!

COMPETITIONS AND CHALLENGES

We have some exciting competitions and challenges for Term 2. These are not due until Term 4, but focusing on them now will leave room for other activities and challenges later in the year. These are things that all EcoMarines will be focusing on and will help us to stay connected while making a difference!

RECYCLING POSTER

Create a recycling poster with drawings or pictures! There are 6 different recycling streams. You can download our EcoMarines Bin Posters for information!

WASTE WARRIORS

Create a piece of art from waste items and tell the story behind why you chose those items. You can make art individually or as a team!

SPREAD THE WORD

Educate the community by making an informative video. You could win a $100 Bunnings voucher for your schools and star on EcoMarines TV!

Each of these challenges can be done on your own at home or as a team... And there are prizes to be won for the school! EcoMarines Ambassadors and Support Crew can hand them in to your teacher. We will collect all entries from them.

STEP 5. DO YOU WANT MORE?

Here are some extra activities for the eager EcoMarines. You can complete these activities at home or at school, by yourself or together with your EcoMarines team!

HANDS ON ACTIVITIES! Do good and feel good.

  • Garden gurus: plant a herb, veggie or native at school or home. Care for it and watch it grow!

  • Backyard bird count: spend some time outside in your school or backyard. Spot how many birds and what species make a visit to the gardens!

  • Wrapper- free lunches: brainstorm some easy wrapper-free recipes for the lunchbox. Try them at home and then share the recipe to encourage your school to go wrapper-free!

ECOMARINES ARE EDUCATORS! Help educate the community and spread awareness.

  • Poster party: Make a poster about any topic you like! Waste? Your favourite animal? We want to see it! You can make your poster as a group or by yourself. 

  • Friendly fun: Pick two or three friends to help save our environments! Together you can check out the EcoMarines Mission and EcoMarines TV!

  • Film Stars: Film a short video and submit it on EcoMarines TV. Check out the web-page here to see an inspiration board about fun videos you can make!

HAVE YOU TRIED AN ACTIVITY? WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE! 

STEP 6. BRAINSTORM BLITZ

Now its your job to help your school save the world! A good place to start is to write down all of your ideas on how to make your school more sustainable. You can use our Brainstorm Form below to jot down your ideas. When your EcoMarines Team is ready to meet, you can go over these ideas together.
