Learning objects Waters of Kamay

TLF ID M025765

This learning sequence explores the salt and fresh waters of Kamay Botany Bay, its importance as a life source and the cultural connection it has to the Aboriginal people living at Kamay. Water is essential for life. It nourishes our bodies, our lands and supports all life on earth. It is home to wondrous and significant species that play a vital role in food webs as well as food sources for the world's people. It provides a conduit for travel and became the path that led the HMB Endeavour to the shores of Kamay in 1770. This resource is one part of the 'Endeavour – eight days in Kamay' resource.
