Iona College recently introduces marine biology education into their school syllabus as a way for students to understand the local environment of which they were a part. Iona College, located in Lindum, Queensland is only a few kilometres from the renowned Moreton Bay. This ecosystem has long history of importance for the local area and especially for the local indigenous population. Pope Francis, since the publication of his encyclical, Laudato Si', in 2015, has urged us more as Christians to care for the creation that God gave us. This brilliant initiative by Iona College to draw the students there into better understanding of their environment has paid off in students helping with a major breakthrough for marine education in the area.
