It is the Junior Indigenous Marine and Environmental Cadets Program which has grabbed the attention of the students, as it proposes not only a viable future, but a future that is invested in the culture and traditions of their peoples.
Currently 15 students participate in our work and training program across the Tiwi Islands, Cairns, Sydney and Banubanu. Next year the program will be expanded to to provide over 30 Junior Guiding positions across Australia.
