For Kids

We’ve long been champions of engaging the younger generation in ‘ocean literacy’, because when the next generation understand the plight of the ocean they’ll be more motivated to safeguard it! Whilst we’re all at home, bringing the #OceanIndoors.


Live Lessons

Want to change up the homeschooling routine or bring some ocean optimism into your classroom? Our education team are here to help.

We’re running free live lessons for young people to learn more about our ocean. Check out the recordings of our previous lessons on turtles, climate change, plastics and more on our YouTube channel, or register for our upcoming dates below.

Get Crafty

Getting creative and doing something which doesn’t involve a screen is a great way to unwind and refocus. We’ve created these fun printouts so that kids can create their very own marine animals!
