Marine CSI Challenge
This is an onshore educational activity for sailing clubs/centres, organisations or businesses to run during open days, sailing regattas, youth events or as a session with groups of young boaters.
The activity aims to raise awareness of four key environmental issues and the good practice that boaters can adopt to help safeguard the wildlife and habitats we share our waters with.
Marine CSI covers four environmental boating incidents that have occurred in a fictional crime scene location, known as Paradise Waters. Participants get to solve these incidents through undertaking water quality tests, fingerprint analysis and unscrambling puzzles to determine who the culprits are from a list of six suspects. Incidents include:
1. An oil spill on a slipway
2. Cleaning chemicals being poured into the water
3. The introduction of harmful invasive animals and plants
4. Items of litter that have entered the water
All equipment to run the activity comes in a loan box and a video guidance is provided to demonstrate and explain how to deliver and set it up.
