Goodbye to DEEP learners

The Dyer Island Conservation Trust’s Environmental Education Programme known as DEEP, works with dedicated groups of young learners and runs for three years to monitor and evaluate the impact and growth of each individual learner.

DEEP’s aim is to expose these young learners to the field of science and conservation and to serve as a forerunner for future skills training.

“It is with a mixture of sadness and pride that we say goodbye to the first group to have completed their three years,” says Brenda du Toit, public relations officer of Dyer Island Conservation Trust. She added educator Pinkey Ngewu gave each learner a certificate and celebrated with the groups in their second and first year.

The students learn about the marine world, participate in beach clean ups, go out to sea with partners Dyer Island Cruises and Marine Dynamics and go on special excursions relevant to the programme, including a year-end camp.

They also learn to present to an audience, understand the Marine Big 5 and some of the other animals in the area, learn about our crucial wetlands and issues related to marine pollution. They are exposed to any special conservation moments that the staff of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust experience.

“We hope we have given them a strong platform and wish them all the best for their future academic performance.

“We will be watching their development over the next few years and hope that some, if not all, will follow a career path in conservation,” says Ngewu.
