Imagine if we could go back in time and stop pests like rats, stoats or weeds like gorse from ever coming into New Zealand. When it comes to our coastlines, we still have a chance to do that!

Enviroschools Waikato are hosting this free webinar during Seaweek, aimed at primary and intermediate teachers across Aotearoa.

The Marine Biosecurity education module is designed for years 5–8 and aims to develop real-life science capabilities in an engaging learning resource. In this webinar we will introduce you to some marine pests, unpack the resource and explore ways that it can be used, helping you to feel confident in supporting your students to play a role in protecting our coastlines.

If you can't attend the live webinar, you can still register to receive the recording.
