Ports and the marine environment

Ports and the marine environment

A series of web pages and photos, including downloadable curriculum materials and student activity sheets. Students will discover the many layers of people and types of transport required to get their favourite gizmo from where it is made overseas to their local shop. They will learn about the role of ports, types of ships visiting Australian ports, safety and environmental issues, the organisations required to operate a port, and the many fascinating machines used in ports. A port can have a large impact on the marine environment and must take a number of precautions to ensure its operations do not harm it. Ports are equally essential for the Australian economy
