Highlights include:

  • Experience incredible marine life 

  • Marine species identification 

  • Water and land-based research 

  • Environmental service hours 

  • Small group learning 

  • Stress-reduction activities

  • Take-home action plans

  • On-going learning community

Each day's lesson will focus on the specific topic listed, however we never can predict what marine life each day will bring! The ultimate goal is to experience the animals' ecosystem and understand how students can become leaders in marine conservation - seeing whales (or any wildlife!) is never guaranteed.
