Come and explore the lively mosaic of Australia’s wildlife with us

Join us for an exciting event designed for international students, where you’ll learn all about the marine fauna in Port Phillip Bay and why it’s important. Led by Faris, our Multicultural Bay Ambassador, we’ll explore the beach, identify different sea creatures using an app called INaturalist, clean up the beach, and have fun chatting with other nature lovers.

With this, Beachkeepers of the Bay for international students will give the participants the opportunity to

  • Discover the various sea animals that call Port Phillip Bay home.
  • Understand why molluscs, like clams and snails, are so vital for the ocean.
  • Learn how to use the INaturalist app to identify different species.
  • Help keep Port Phillip Bay clean by joining our beach clean-up.
  • Meet other international students who share your love for nature.
  • Find out about volunteering opportunities with the EcoCentre to help protect the environment.

By taking part, you’ll not only learn about marine life and enjoy outdoor activities but also make new friends and contribute to important conservation efforts. Plus, you’ll be helping gather important information about the molluscs in Port Phillip Bay, which helps us protect their habitat.
