Activites and curricula for all ages and audiences are available at the NOAA Marine Debris Program's website. These resources focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) standards and were developed or funded by the NOAA Marine Debris Program. Both formal and informal educational resources are available.
Oceanic Global's NYC Hub created this book to serve as a reminder that artistic expression and creative communication play a crucial role in the ocean conservation movement, and that our next generation of ocean leaders is engaged and dedicated to finding solutions. Use this book as an engaging educational tool to teach young people about marine plastic pollution and how we all can be a part of the solution. The Book is available for sale at the Oceanic Global website and available to educators for free. https://shop.oceanic.global/
An education experience geared for youth in formal and informal education settings, exploring marine debris composition, transportation, cleanup and most importantly, prevention. Created by Ocean Conservancy with guidance from the NOAA Marine Debris Program and inspired by 35 years of International Coastal Cleanup data. If you are interested in hard copies of the materials (guide, posters, etc), please contact Ocean Conservancy firstname.lastname@example.org. www.OceanConservancy.org/ed
Working in collaboration with the U.S. Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary, Ocean Conservancy created Good Mate, a public outreach program aimed at reducing and eliminating marine pollution and environmental degradation. The program provides simple, easy-to-follow guidelines for green boating and in recent years has expanded to include free resources to support marinas, boaters, and paddlers as they conduct shoreline or on-the-water cleanups. There are also posters, brochures, and other cleanup resources available via the Ocean Conservancy website link or contact Ocean Conservancy directly. www.OceanConservancy.org/goodmate
