Kids Club – Annual Membership for children 16 and under

Kids Club is a great way to engage children to respect, protect and support all living things.  For more than 110 years we have created generations of eco-warriors. Help us create the next generation of eco warriors as mother earth needs our support now more than ever before!

The Kids Club Membership includes:
– 1 year membership
– Membership Letter
– Badge
– Australian Guide To Book (2022’s book is The Australian Guide to Beaches and Rockpools) which features the Weedy Seadragon)
– Pledge Certificate
– Folded Poster of Seahorses and Seadragons

In 2022 our badge features the  Weedy Seadragon also known as the common seadragon in recognition of the UN year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture. Its scientific name is Phyllopteryx taeniolatus and it is a member of the Syngnathidae family.  It is related to seahorses, pipehorses and pipefish.  It became Victoria’s official marine emblem by public nomination in 2002.  You may recall in 2021 Sir David Attenborough lent his support to a Mornington Peninsula community’s battle to prevent the partial demolition of a wooden jetty, arguing it provides valuable habitat for the threatened Weedy Seadragon.  So together, let’s do what we can to protect this important species found right here in Port Philip Bay.

Thank you for your contribution as without this support, the Gould League could not continue it’s important work supporting teachers and educating the next generation to protect and support our precious environment.
