GRANT-FUNDED OCEAN EDUCATION

The Pacific Whale Foundation is proud to announce a new grant award through the County of Maui Environmental Protection & Sustainability Division that will offer a new Plastic Pollution Solutions program to all middle and high school students in Maui County (click for details).

Teachers interested in welcoming Pacific Whale Foundation’s Plastic Pollution Solutions program may choose from 3 curriculum delivery options: a school assembly to share and discuss the 22-minute film A Plastic Ocean (better suited for large groups), a classroom presentation and customized workshop (better suited for smaller groups), or a leave behind, for teachers that prefer to present the program in another way. For details and scheduling information, contact Education Manager Robyn Ehrlich at robynehrlich@pacificwhale.org.

Plastic touches all of our lives and many of the plastics you touch in your daily life are used only once and thrown away. So much plastic is ending up in the ocean that in just a few years, we might end up with a pound of plastic for every three pounds of fish in the sea. But the future of plastics in our ocean will be determined by the way we handle plastics on land.
