By Prosser, Ashton & Jenson

Australia’s waterways and oceans have been inundated with plastic waste and pollution. To address this issue, this team want to tackle pollution and educate people on sustainable fishing practices.

This idea is targeted at fishermen and environmentalists in Victoria, as it aims to improve the oceans ecosystem. This educational program will give people insight into the effects that unsustainable fishing has on the oceans ecosystem and the impacts of littering of harmful materials such as plastic on sea life in the local area.

They would like to run an educational workshop at schools, with an expert to share insights on the dangers of over-fishing, and the effect that this can have on our ecosystem.
