Supporting ‘Chevron environmental family day’

Pendoley was invited to participate in the annual Chevron environmental family day held at the Perth Convention Centre on 22nd July 2011.

With a wide range of booths on show, the Pendoley Environmental booth focussed on marine turtle habitat. We created an exciting booth, enabling interaction with children of all ages who could engage in a variety of activities such as being a marine biologist for the day, turtle species identification and making turtle paper streamers.

Bec McCracken, Graduate Environmental Scientist, said "it is an excellent opportunity to engage children and raise awareness of the marine turtle, especially the flatback turtle”.

The day was considered a success and over 200 children and families attended.
