2023 Year in Review

Thank you to our valued community and supporters who have made 2023 a record-breaking year for the Marine Discovery Centre.
Our year in review...
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the visitors (over 10,000 including volunteers) who visited the Marine Discovery Centre SA in 2023, and our dedicated team of volunteers who jointly dedicated over 1500 hours of their time empowering our community to actively protect South Australia's iconic coastal and marine environments. This included a wonderful internship program with The University of Adelaide and several South Australian High School work experience programs in addition to our dedicated and amazing team of volunteers.
We thank Blair Boyer MP, Minister for Education, Training & Skills for supporting our educational programs and giving us the ability to provide free excursions for schools in low socio-economic areas.
Green Adelaide has provided us with tools to educate thousands of South Australians by enabling us to continue to grow and educate online via Porci's Ocean Patrol we're looking forward to highlighting these new tools in 2024.
We adopted a portion of Henley Beach via Adopt-a-spot scheme and managed 142 beach cleans.
We look forward to 2024 and thank our partners and supporters for making 2023 possible.
