Taronga Zoo’s Zoomobile and its animals have taken a trip to Dora Creek Public School for a sustainable seafood celebration as winners of the Fish for Good marine conservation campaign aimed at empowering people to make informed choices when they buy seafood.
Taronga visited Dora Creek Public School today for a sustainable seafood lunch including a Taronga Zoomobile visit featuring Australian wildlife.
Dora Creek Public School won the NSW primary schools competition in which schools uploaded Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) approved seafood recipes online.
Dora Creek Public School showed the most involvement (18.58%) in posting approved MSC sustainable seafood photographs to Taronga’s Fish for Good schools website.
The Zoomobile provides the South-west Lake Macquarie school children the chance to meet and learn about a range of native animals with the opportunity to witness native wildlife up close.
MSC is the world’s leading independent certification and eco-labelling scheme for wild-caught seafood. Fisheries that meet the MSC standard have proven that their target stock is healthy and viable, they cause minimal impact on the ecosystem and surrounding environment, and they have effective management systems.
