Trailblazers get creative for Gladstone’s Big 6

16 October 2017

Gladstone Ports Corporation are inviting trailblazers to get creative and win a guided tour of Gladstone’s Big 6 Discovery ​Trail at Spinnaker Park.

Schools are encouraged to collaborate and produce a poem featuring Gladstone’s Big 6 or at least one of the Big 6 tribes, Turtles, Cetaceans, Crustaceans, Shorebirds, Dugongs and Fish.

GPC Marine Scientist, Dr Megan Ellis, said that the Big 6 generates a great deal of interest from local schools.

“Throughout this program we have conducted many school visits, educating students on Gladstone’s Big 6 and what they can do to help protect these iconic animals,” she said.

“This competition gives schools the opportunity to get creative and potentially win a guided tour of Gladstone’s Big 6 Discovery Trail with me as your escort..”

The prize includes a bus for up to 50 students and staff, a guided tour of the Big 6 Discovery Trail and light refreshments.

Gladstone’s Big 6 is an education and awareness program where children can choose their favourite tribe to receive more information, stickers, a cap as well as access online activities and regular updates.

For more information about the competition, email the Community Investment Team​ to learn more about the program and to visit Gladstone's Big 6 website to sign up to your tribe. ​
