Ocean Wise Education

Our educational programs foster ocean literacy around the world.

Ocean Education

Educating young and curious minds is the key to ocean conservation. Ocean Wise education connects youth globally through digital, in-person and mobile programs that encourage ocean literacy and foster a sense of stewardship from an early age.

Ocean Wise Education works with audiences of all backgrounds and sizes, schools youth-serving agencies, and community groups to individuals and families. Each of the areas are targeted to a range of ages and developmental stages, covering young ocean enthusiasts from toddlers to late teens. The unifying Principles of Ocean Literacy are woven throughout all of our programs, providing a common thread and a shared language to work with the other ocean conservation leaders.
