“On the 23rd and 24th of March I took part in the World Science Festival Brisbane. I volunteered in the 'Turtle Hatchery' department as well as showcasing the artistic talent of primary schools all over Queensland in the 'Hatchery Crusaders' area.
My role in these departments was to oversee and take care of the baby turtles that were hatching at the festival and to display and explain the artwork that the primary school students made. The turtles, fish and other amazing sea creatures were made from plastics that were found near the sea. This highlighted the social issue of littering in Queensland.
The World Science Festival Brisbane was an incredible experience and an amazing opportunity to get involved with the community. I look forward to taking part in the festival for many more years to come. “
