EcoMarines Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation. Our environmental education programs are provided free of charge for schools across Queensland.

Without the generous support of our sponsors, partners and donations, we wouldn't be able to continue our mission of creating a community of environmental leaders. Please consider donating today!

Create the Foundations for Lifelong Learning & Development

Tangalooma EcoMarines Early Learning Program is about embedding sustainable practices within the early years. In just the first five years of a child’s life, their brain development will create the foundations for lifelong learning and development. Therefore, the importance of embedding sustainable practices at such a young age is crucial for our children to live a clean and green life.

This fun play-based program will provide opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise, and imagine throughout a variety of Eco-Focuses such as gardening, water conservation, waste reduction and more. This program is not just about the children, we want everyone involved!

Tangalooma EcoMarines want to educate families, staff, and the wider community. By encouraging children’s participation in experiences, challenges and activities that will strengthen their relationships with members of the wider community, it will contribute to their sense of belonging, being and becoming.

The program provides helpful resources, information and connections with third party companies to help educators create a sustainable centre. Furthermore, when educators create environments in which children experience mutually enjoyable, caring, and respectful relationships with people and the environment, children will respond accordingly.

As a community let us connect and contribute to our world and teach children to become socially responsible and show respect for their environment.
