During these challenging times, we are all in this together. The Sea of Change Foundation, as a leader in both conservation and education will contribute too. We recognize that families are challenged to find and provide educational resources and activities for home-schooling. To that end, weekly we will be posting, on our Facebook page, links and descriptions of resources available online that can be used at home.
Here are a few to start with:
- Schoolyard Films, Inc. provides environmental films and study guides;
- Oceans for Youth Foundation provides “Creature Feature” short, educational videos
- Patrick Ching, Hawaii’s Nature Artist provides downloadable coloring pages;
- Ocean First Institute provides a free course in Ocean Literacy;
- The CornellLab provides virtual birding videos and quizzes.
Additionally, with the Science Exchange, the Foundation has initiated a citizen science competition, the “Build A Better Box” Contest that invites students to learn about and create improved designs for sea turtle nesting boxes using sustainable materials with a $700USD prize. The complete contest requirements and rules are here.
“At the Sea of Change Foundation, we believe in empowering students and families to learn about the natural world” said Samantha Whitcraft, Director of Conservation and Outreach for the Foundation. Importantly, “through the Foundation, we cans help ensure future generations appreciate the natural world and its wonders,” concluded Wayne Brown, CEO of Aggressor Adventures® and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Foundation.
