Working with schools across Cape Town and although access to an aquarium, the majority of children in townships are not aware of the critical state of our oceans. We aim to break barriers to provide education and awareness of ocean conservation to young township students to empower and provide them access to routes to get involved with conservation in their community. We run an outreach program where we take basic marine life on the road to schools and provide visits to the local Aquarium.
Oceans in Motion is the a local flagship outreach programme run in Cape Town. Oceans in Motion aims to capture the hearts and minds the children of under-resourced schools around Cape Town who can't afford to visit local marine education centres such as the Aquarium. The organisation's people-centred approach to changing human behaviour as a means of combatting the effects of climate change reached 53,329 children in 2018.
A fully run outreach program in partnership with the local Aquarium. We aim to fund a Ocean Bus that will be equipped with professional expert staff and resources and will visit township and under resourced local schools. With our fully equipped mobile aquarium facility, we offer children an unforgettable experience with live marine animals. We hope that the children will appreciate the value of living animals and will contribute to the conservation on their door step
This project is the start of introducing the awareness of marine conservation that is on the door steps. This project aims to inspire the youths to take action and even look to follow a career in conservation. As well as awareness additional trip into Aquariums and other marine educational centres will be funded and access to internships will be made available to students engaged
