Swamp Savers

The Fleurieu Swamps are a unique and critically endangered ecosystem. Since 2014, students from Fleurieu Peninsula schools have learnt about biodiversity and the importance of the Fleurieu Swamps through the Swamp Savers Program.

Mount Compass Area School students have been trained to become Swamp Leaders and are available to take students from other schools on tours of the swamp. Contact Mount Compass Area School for more information.
