Build your own natural sea wall!
Duration: long-term project
Type of activity: modelization, experiment
Materials required: biodegradable materials (such as old coconut leaves, mats, sticks, driftwood, dead plant material) and sand
Together, participants will have to find the ideal location to build this sea wall. They will have to use biodegradable materials and pile them up to build a solid foundation.
Natural sea walls are made of biodegradable materials that help protect the coast from erosion caused by rising sea levels and wave action.
The downloadable PDF document provides the complete protocol for the activity. It ends wih a discussion section to build on the knowledge gained during the project.
