Oceans Alive fills a gap with shared learning, building networks, and supporting change using our proven model for catalysing and enhancing locally-led marine conservation.
Conservation education is not included in the school curriculum, so we need to work to educate and inspire children and youth as key to the future.
Oceans Alive has developed its education capacity to share the power of the community-led conservation approach with local schools, clubs and fishers in Kilifi County. By raising awareness and education, we mobilise support for sustainable ecosystem management in coastal communities and illustrate how people can become advocates for their marine resources.
Over 250 participants in our 5-week gap year program
Nearly 200 children have benefitted from our partnership with youth group Ocean Eyes to teach local school children about coral restoration and coral gardening
