Marine centre opens its doors
THE Seascape Marine Museum celebrated its first World Environment and World Oceans days yesterday by opening its doors to the public.
The adventure education centre, located at the North Star Caravan Park in Hastings Point, is a fully interactive marine centre, facilitator Kerrie Trees said.
“In celebrating the two days, we thought we would invite the locals to check out all the Seascape Marine Museum has to offer,” Ms Trees said.
“The day went great; we had a lovely, steady flow of people and lots of great feedback.”
For a gold coin donation participants had a closer look at some of the creatures that occupy our shorelines.
“There were heaps of kids and they spent a lot of time enjoying the big range of specimens,” she said.
“As usual, the highlight was when people got to handle the live creatures and look at the live creatures through the microscope.”
Ms Trees said the centre plans to hold World Environment Day and World Oceans Day celebrations every year, even if they are belated.
“It's something we will do annually in June,” she said.
