Coastcare Week 2021 is about discovering what you can do to help protect our coasts and marine environments. Virtual Excursions Australia has a range of FREE programs to provide learners access to educational content to achieve this goal.
Where the rivers meet the sea

Deep Blue Oceans
Dive into the science of the sea with Fizzics Education. Explore the physical factors that determine life underwater and along our coastlines.
Take a journey beneath the waves with Karen from Australian Environmental Education to explore Australia’s amazing marine life. Discover different marine habitats and the animals that live there.
How to conduct a beach survey
Recognise Coastcare Week by learning how you can conduct a beach survey. Our coasts are impacted by our actions on land. Rubbish and microplastics can be found washed up on almost every Australian beach.
