More than 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with ocean, yet humans have only begun to scratch the surface to fully understanding its complexity. The air we breathe, the food we eat, and even the water we drink are all connected to the sea. Major changes are happening to this once thought unchangeable vastness. The oceans dynamically balance our atmosphere and buffer changes in climate, but we are already seeing signs of an irreversible shift. Our security, our economy, and our very survival depend upon the health of our oceans.
Despite the vital role the ocean plays in our daily lives, we are noticing an increasing disconnect between young people and this blue planet.Heavily scheduled agendas and the majority of children's time spent indoors,result in an alarming disconnect with our marine world. We need to dive back into this magnificent habitat and learn how to become advocates for a healthy ocean.
Healthy Aquatics multidisciplinary approach encourages learners of all ages to set sail on an adventure to reconnect and learn to appreciate our ocean world. Our unique programs are dedicated to using science, technology, education, and research to promote ocean conservation through hands on learning experiences. We passionately believe that empowering students with the knowledge to preserve our natural world today will ensure future stewards and pioneers of tomorrow.
