Students had a guest visit from SPLASH! She went over the importance of making sure ALL garbage makes its way to the trash or recycling bin to keep our waters clean. Students learned how garbage affects the survival of the water species as well as land animals. The students watched a video about Inky, a little whale found in poor health because she swallowed lots of garbage! The video showed other animals that ate trash or had trash somehow attached to its body making it difficult for them to swim/fly. The presenter explained how our storm drain system works & how they all lead to our waters. The students were given a Storm Drain Data Collection Chart, where they will keep record of all items found that didn’t make it to the garbage bin to keep it from hurting our water & land animals. They will be adopting a storm drain & will be responsible for keeping it clean. So let’s all work together to SPLASH: Stop-Polluting-Littering-and-Save-Harbours.
