Fish habitat sleek geeks

Where have we seen these kids before? Good on you kids, you're our future.  :youbeauty (and well done to their parents as well  :Clap) )

Fish habitat sleek geeks

Six young habitat rehabilitators from Wilsons Creek Public School have gained national attention for the fish habitat message by coming second in the University of Sydney Sleek Geeks Science Eureka School Prizes, part of the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes. This prize asks students to get a scientific message out to a broad audience in a way that helps people ‘learn something without even noticing’. Bodhi Genis, Jules Tait, Emile Scheffers, Yanik Scheffers, Jack Allen and Acacia Smith did this admirably, then went on to donate 70% of their $1000 prize money to a fund to actually fix the Coopers Creek road crossing.
While they and other supporters chase funds, the children continue to build their skills and knowledge of aquatic habitat through
participating in Waterwatch monitoring of Wilsons Creek.

Watch their video here:

About the same you posted this thread Fitzy, I was funnily enough sourcing it to use as part of a presentation I am giving the students of Unity College at Caloundra West to demonstrate the environmental impact man made structures can have on our waterways. My presentation will be on the Mooloolah catchment area which includes Ewen Maddack Dam.

Well done to the kids for doing such a fantastic job on their presentation, creating a simple, yet extremely effective demonstation to how things should be done within our waterways.  :youbeauty
