On the 11th November 2016 Tangaroa Blue Foundation had the pleasure of taking part in the 5th Bay OK Day, where children from Dunsborough Primary School spend the day learning about how to better care for and look after Geographe Bay. The students walk from the school down to the shores of Geographe Bay where they take part in a range of beachfront activities including fishing, recycled art workshop, looking at marine creatures under microscopes, learning about stormwater runoff, Surf Life Saving demonstration, and more.
Tangaroa Blue member Renee Mouritz worked with Yr 4 and 5 students, teaching them about Tangaroa Blue and the impacts that plastics and rubbish have on our local marine life and seabirds. It was really refreshing to see how much knowledge and awareness the students already have about the impacts of marine debris in our oceans.
Tangaroa Blue was also awarded a Five Year Champions certificate acknowledging our contribution over the five years that Bay OK Day has run.
