Nautilus Project presents World Oceans Day awards

The Nautilus Project presented the 5th annual World Oceans Day school competition prizegiving ceremony held at the Alameda Gardens.

The winners from local schools were tasked with researching local marine wildlife from the Nautilus Project’s flagship app NEMO.
Hundreds of entries were submitted, with St Pauls Lower Primary school announced as the Overall School Winner for their work on “Water”.

Various winners were chosen by the panel of judges throughout different categories.

The Nautilus Project will mark their anniversary on June 22 and seeks to continue their commitment of supporting local schools through the national curriculum, Gibraltar Marine Studies, PBL’s, fieldtrips and tailored talks.

The Project thanked entrants, teaches, parents, sponsors, the Minister for Environment Dr John Cortes and their Duke of Edinburgh bronze participants.
