My name is Lily Munro, and I am from Immanuel Lutheran College. For the past week, I have been at SCEC for my school’s work experience program. Some of the activities I helped with have been participating with their social media and drafting some of their posts, preparing supplies for the upcoming EV expo (it’s on this Sunday at Noosa so make sure you come and check it out!) and creating some fun posters about different campaigns they have running.
It has been an awesome week, and everyone was super friendly and welcoming. I learnt a lot about how much effort and care goes into an organisation like this.
While I was here, I discovered how devastating shark nets can be to the local marine population. I spoke about how large of an effect they have for SCEC’s Instagram, and we spoke with people about the Nets Out Now program and how it is advocating for a safer environment for the local marine population.
I am super thankful to everyone at SCEC for giving me this opportunity to learn and participate with the organisation.
