Mangroves and tidal wetlands are critical ecosystems that support, protect and enhance the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. But they are under significant threat due to climate change, land clearing and other human impacts.

Teachers are invited to register for two-day training workshops which will be held in four locations, Cairns, Mackay, North Keppel and Gladstone to enable their school to become part of a critical research program to save these ecosystems.

Teachers will build skills in scientific design, data collection, and analysis and be equipped with the skills needed to build a wetland monitoring program with their students. Free educational resources will be available to assist with linking to science curriculum.
