Catchment Detox

Overview

Catchment Detox is a game on the ABC Science website for upper primary and secondary students where players are required to manage a virtual river catchment to create a healthy environment and sustainable and flourishing economy. Catchment Detox allows students to experience how human activities impact upon catchments through modelling the effects of water planning, agricultural practices, development and tourism on the ecology of a river system.
