Beachcomber Guide Marine and Coastal Information Kiosk.

Walking along our coast, you will come across some creatures and plants that defy explanation, a visit to the new Marine and coastal information kiosk in Pearly Beach will answer many questions, like identifying these organisms into their kingdoms and genus, the kiosk is open daily and is free! The colourful display and information boards illustrate the many complex ecosystems unique to this coast and tell a rich story of the marine diversity we are privileged to observe on our doorstep.

The initiative for this project started a few years ago while i attended a 6 week F.G.A.S.A. nature guiding course, followed by two years of studying marine and coastal ecology, becoming aware of the complexities of our environment sparked an unquenchable thirst for knowledge about our natural world, which evolved into a desire to share these wonders. The next step will be to encourage young people to take an interest and become more connected to their environment, inspiring a sound conservation ethic for future generations.

If we understand our fascinating environment the desire to preserve it naturally follows. Our lives are bombarded with messages.” Save the environment.” “Stop global warming, etc”. I believe the task is too large to contemplate on a daily basis, so go easy on yourself; stop trying to change the world and rather put your waking effort into changing yourself into a better person and undoubtedly your world and mine will change for the better.
