YOUTH COASTAL AMBASSADORS

Each year Stefan runs a youth coastal ambassador course empowering youth to become active stewards of our oceans. Through the course, year 8-9 students in Adelaide are able to learn about local marine life, ecosystems, the aboriginal connection to our coasts, conservation, citizen science and more.

The program is a collaboration with Green Adelaide, Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries and Kaurna elder Karl Telfer and provides a hands-on approach to learning, providing practical training, resources and guidance to learn about our local coast and marine environments.

 

At last year's workshop, Stefan interviewed some of the ambassadors about their experience with the program (see videos by Stefan below).
