Best of luck to our Nautilus #SilverDofE participants who have travelled to the Sierra de Gredos, Spain for their Qualifying Adventurous Journey. Their commitment to the charity and Gibraltar as a whole has being such that we dedicate today's post to them. As a group, these inspiring teenagers have gone over and above the call of duty within the charityโ€™s parameters representing our environment, our marine heritage and #Gibraltar at large with strong leaderships skills. All of them have logged far more hours than required by their DofE commitment for two years in a row and always with a spring in their step and a smile on their face. They have pushed themselves, at times out of their comfort zones, acquiring new sets of life skills which in no doubt will stay with them throughout the rest of their lives. They are a strong voice for the charityโ€™s ethos and a great example of youth empowerment to the rest of the community and their peers, displaying courage, resilience and compassion.

The children painted a mural to remind both present and future pupils that we need to work together to create a new way with the ocean. One that no longer destroys it but instead restores it and brings it new life.Year 2 pupils celebrated the role the oceans play in our everyday life and talked about what action we can take to protect the ocean.Further Reception children enjoyed a visit from AquaGib who taught them all about the importance of water, where our water comes from and how important it is not to waste water.St Joseph's then attended our 6th #WorldOceansDay prizegiving ceremony where they scooped up a very worthy 2nd prize! #togetherwearestronger #wearblue #marinescience #gibraltar ...

The Nautilus Project are humbled with the Royals visit to our Laboratory.After weeks of hard work and preparation, the teenage cohort were able to showcase the experiences and knowledge they have acquired as volunteers of the charity. Many of those present are currently sitting their GCSE examinations yet they felt that this was a once in a lifetime experience and the team is extremely proud of how they conducted themselves. It was so rewarding to witness the Earl and the Countess so engaged with the children! They manned stalls on diving and snorkeling in Gibraltar, Microplastic surveys and protocols, the Refill network, DofE service as well as The Great Gibraltar Beach Cleans, Octopus and Phytoplankton research and lastly, Gibraltar's Marine Shoreline Invertebrates.Needless to say, the kids were buzzing after the visit! It was fantastic for them to be able to present their work to our local leaders also! A massive thank you to the Gibraltar Sports & Leisure Authority for all their assistance throughout the day!

#WorldClimateChangeDay With increased frequency of extreme weather, habitats are changing at an unprecedented rate. The species which have historically occupied these habitats are being forced to adapt at a speed never seen before in human history.Humans rely on these intricate foodwebs because we form part of the ecosystem. When species go extinct it will ultimately affect us.As part of the 'Business Lunch and Learn' program, we offer climate change workshops. Is your organisation looking at embarking on a sustainable journey? Get in touch!

The Nautilus Project
Inspired by The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Gibraltar, yesterday we launched our new programme ๐Ÿ™ŒIt was an absolute honor to present the first batch to last year's #bronzedofe participants for completing their service with us. Not only did they log their required hours, they went over and beyond the call of duty ๐Ÿ‘ We are delighted that they continue their #silverdofe journey with us ๐Ÿ’™ With 11 levels (and growing) to achieve, we are in no doubt that this capable group of teenagers will acquire them all and more! A credit to Gibraltar, The Nautilus Project, The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, their parents and teachers! We wish you the very best of luck as you embark on your GCSE's - we believe in you all! Special thanks to Paul Lyon who awarded the accolades to the 13 participants ๐Ÿ™ Thank you Gibraltar Sports & Leisure Authority OTWO we love the designs you created!
