Project outline:

The goal of this project was to increase community awareness of catchment and water quality issues via the production of a quality visual display/ presentation detailing the Whitsunday catchments. Year 9 students from Proserpine State High School collected information on the Proserpine River catchment and its users during a field trip then developed a presentation with Microsoft PowerPoint. This was later converted to DVD and has been put on display to the public at various businesses in the Whitsunday area.
