Mount Compass Area School Swamp Ambassadors – SA
Mount Compass Area School’s Swamp Ambassadors is a student-led environment program where students are the custodians of the school’s critically endangered Fleurieu swamp. As custodians, the students work to increase the awareness, and value, of Fleurieu swamps in the local community. The students have worked hard to change the perception of the swamps, through partnerships with Fleurieu Swamps Recovery Program and have undertaken leadership and guide training to effectively share their knowledge and promote the importance of Fleurieu swamps in an engaging way. Prior to the program, the swamp was seen as unvalued land area that wasn’t used, understood or promoted in any way.
