The Department of Fisheries and Woodside have formed a joint initiative to advance marine education throughout schools in Western Australia.
Marine WATERs (Western Australian Teacher Education Resources) is an interactive and fully integrated online resource that connects educators and students with specific material to assist in the study of our unique marine ecosystems and the challenges facing the sustainability of our aquatic resources. This curriculum-based education resource includes lessons plans, interactive and extension activities, student worksheets, fact sheets and information on current and emerging issues in the marine world. There are five themed modules – ‘processes’, ‘marine biology’, ‘habitats’, ‘humans’ and ‘management’. With up to date marine education, this program will help students understand and value the diversity, complexity and beauty of the WA marine environment.
