EARTHCARE was invited to present to young minds attending
Coach Nathan O’Connor’s Tennis Camp.
Campers enjoyed an interactive presentation on Bahamas Environmental
issues with a concentration on Coastal Awareness.
An active Trivia contest ensued immediately after the
presentation. All campers received
prizes for their correct answers.
Wright tied with his brother for the Grand Prize but won on the
Gail Woon, EARTHCARE representative was especially pleased
to be able to have time with the campers.
“Summer time is very slow for us because the schools are on break. We are happy to be asked by Coach Nathan to
make presentations to his summer campers.”
Topics presented this summer included:- Healthy Reefs vs. Unhealthy Reefs, Sea Level
Rise, Various Fishing Methods, Coastal Habitat Destruction, Mangrove
Destruction, Dredging without Environmental Impact Assessment, Industrial
Mining, , Endangered Sea and Shore Birds, Invasive Species, Environmental
Remediation, and Kids Who make a Difference.
It was a great experience and EARTHCARE would be pleased if
Coach invites us back next summer. The
Tennis Camp continues through to the end of August in time for school to
start. If you still need something
constructive for your child to do this summer contact Coach Nathan at the Grand
Bahama Tennis & Squash Club.
