Junior OzFishers is for ages 4-14. The program challenges are designed to be both rewarding and achievable by everyone in that age bracket. Younger Junior OzFishers can call on family members if they need a helping hand.
You can definitely get involved and do the challenges in your local waterways – however, we are only able to send badges to Junior OzFishers who have completed the challenges and live in Australia.
The only way to get a badge is to become a member and complete the challenges. Our official OzFish badges are very special and recognise our cool Junior OzFishers completing their challenges.
Of course – you automatically became one when your family signed up! If it was only recently, you should expect your Ozzie badge to come in the mail in the next few weeks. If you’re still waiting after four weeks, please get in touch at email@example.com and we’ll locate him.
We’re sorry about that – It sounds like we may not have up to date information for your family members in our system. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address, list of family members who should be attached to your profile and their birth dates, and we’ll get it sorted.
Oh, no. We’re sorry that you haven’t received Ozzie yet. Please send an email to email@example.com with your name, contact details and address, and we’ll be in contact with you soon.
That’s an easy one! Just click here: Junior OzFishers Challenges
Any updates about Junior OzFishers will be sent to the email address that is registered to your name.
You can tackle the challenges in any order you want!
The Junior OzFishers program and its challenges are flexible and can be completed in any time frame that suits you. Whether that’s getting them all done in the school holidays or ticking them off at a slower pace.
You sure can, but we do ask that you fill out the submission form for each Junior OzFisher involved. That way we can make sure we are sending out the correct number of badges.
Our official OzFish badges are very special and therefore, we only send out one per person, even if you do the challenge more than once. We hope that you enjoy helping us and turn it into forever behaviours. Every time you visit your local waterway you can do your bit for fish habitat.
Oh no, have you checked down the back of the sofa or in your tackle box? We keep a record of your completed challenges, so don’t worry, you might have lost your badge but we still recognise your efforts and think you are pretty cool!
Once my fishy friends have had a number of Junior OzFishers complete their challenges, we’ll get together and see who else wants to be involved in this cool club. In the meantime, keep doing the great things you learnt during the challenges and share with your friends all your new fun fish facts! If there’s a particular one of our friends you want to meet next, we’d love to hear about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
