Grace Primary Ecomarines focus on saving the bay

What do you get when you combine a lot of little hands with a BIG mission to clean up our environment and save our beautiful Moreton Bay? You get Grace Lutheran Primary School’s EcoMarine Ambassadors, a group of passionate students doing a mighty job in our region.

Grace Lutheran Primary School’s EcoMarine Ambassadors have been driving their eco warrior message strongly throughout the local community and gaining a growing band of eco supporters through their ‘War on Waste’ initiatives and challenges throughout 2018.

Grace Lutheran Primary School Principal Mrs Trudy Moala said students enjoyed their weekly clean up mornings around our local beach at Pelican Park, to look after Moreton Bay and help protect the marine life that call it home.

“Our EcoMarine Ambassadors are passionate about saving the bay and reducing plastics and litter in our waterways,” she said.

“This passion has driven them to raise awareness on recycling, introduce a worm farm and recycling program at our school and even undertake an ‘analysing lunch waste’ project to show our school community what an impact they have can have on our environment and how we can all help and be environmental heroes,” Mrs Moala said.

“Our ambassadors have done a mighty job in raising our school’s eco-friendly focus and we congratulate the team at Tangalooma Eco Marines for their support, sharing of their knowledge and ideas, and inspiriting our wonderful EcoMarine Ambassadors to share their eco-passion,” she said.
