MAKING A SPLASH – TAKING CARE OF ROEBUCK BAY
A year 5 Kimberley PEAC class made animations about the marine life around Broome and Roebuck Bay to help community awareness of their need for protection. Guest speakers from Roebuck Bay Working Group, Broome Bird Observatory and Broome Seagrass Monitoring shared knowledge and gave students hands on experience with the marine animals.
The students created short animations to send a message about protecting the marine life. Using a range of media and technology five short films were produced.
A selection of these animations have been shared with Broome residents and beyond.
