Welcome to the EcoMarines Early Learning Program! 

Your centre will have the opportunity to join in an eco-focus every couple of months. Your mini EcoMarines can complete challenges and activities, submit entries and go in the draw to win some great prizes all while working towards a more sustainable centre.

 

Don't worry, we will help you along the way! Once your centre signs up, we will send you emails to keep you in the loop and help you engage in other centres who are doing great things for our environment! 

 

Check out our 2019 EcoMarines Booklet to learn about how our Secondary and Primary EcoMarines ambassadors tackle environmental challenges in their schools, and perhaps provide some inspiration for your centre.
