How I got caught up in corals

I designed the activity booklet for Ghosts Nets of the Ocean – Au Karemira Lamar Lu, an exhibition by Torres Strait artists from Erub Arts, Australia. Ghost nets are discard fishing nets trapping unsuspecting creatures, and the artists have transformed into a spectacular seascape of marine fauna. It was an honour to work on this, joining the artists in generating awareness of ocean pollution and its dangers.

 

Following the diver across different underwater habitats as he discovers artefacts around the museum, children have to piece together the secret code, as they learn of the drastic consequences of when man neglects to care for environment, and what can be done to help.
