To stimulate student thinking and start building an understanding of First Nations Sea Country conservation watch this Acknowledgment of Sea Country HERE

Project Codium students are working together to address the challenge

How might we build community awareness to protect Codium fragile and the intertidal ocean zone in which it lives? 

Student designs will have the opportunity to be part of the “Inside the Tide” exhibition opening at The Calyx, in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in December 2021

To do a great job of designing and making a Community Awareness solution it is important that students research and understand as much as possible about Seaweeds and seaweed conservation so they can tell the world about them.
