Daintree Professional Development Opportunity for Teachers
Earthwatch Australia is offering an opportunity for science and geography teachers to participate in a 7-day professional development experience at the Daintree River in North Queensland.
On this expedition, you will have a unique opportunity to assist scientists as they assess and protect the mangroves fringing Daintree’s rainforests and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef – generating scientific data which will be used to develop a national strategy for more effective management of valuable coastal tidal wetlands faced with climate change and local human pressures.
On this expedition, teachers have the option to use the TeachLive website www.teachlive.org.au to enhance the experience, for both themselves and their students, if they wish. The expedition location can experience low internet capabilities, and so uploading to the website has proved challenging in the past, but not impossible.
WHERE: Daintree River, North Queensland
WHEN: 15 – 21 November 2018 (Arriving Thurs 15th and departing Wed 21st November)
DURATION: 7 days (5 school days)
