Gcina Bernice Stan

My name is Gcina Bernice Stan. I’m from Newlands West and I matriculated in 2017 at Newlands West Secondary School.

The reason I decided to embark on this project is because it will give me an opportunity to educate all the children and people in communities who are not exposed to the marine environment and conservation. I feel that it is very crucial to educate people about the marine environment and conservation because all life and its vital systems are connected. Therefore, by creating awareness we can ensure that our ecosystems are protected.

I’m very interested in studying Marine biology hence I believe that this project will enhance my knowledge on the sea environment and how to sustain, protect and take care of it. It will also give me experience on the things I should be doing as a marine biologist because it’s all about learning and taking care of the sea environment and conservation.
