The Maroochy Wetlands Santuary Eco-Hunt, a school holiday activity with a difference, was a great success. It encouraged people to explore the wetlands and submit photos of wildlife through an app and was a wonderful demonstration of how to combine the technological world with the natural world to get children out in nature.
It was great to meet the winning families and kids, who were excited to be part of this unique event. It made them slow down and experience the wetlands and its natural beauty in a different way. The event was a partnership between council , Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary Support Group Inc and QuestaGame.
