Teach and learn about ocean sustainability in Australia and New Zealand

Use our curriculum relevant teaching and learning resources to discover how we can help keep our oceans healthy for generations to come.

Why teach sustainability?

We have a wide range of ocean-themed classroom resources for teachers and parents. Our resources are suitable for students learning about the UN Sustainable Development Goals, ocean sustainability, livelihoods and communities, fishing sustainably, food chains and food security.

Introduce ocean sustainability themes with our award-winning film, created with young people and their teachers in mind. Follow a fisherman’s daughter into the wild, as she explores ocean sustainability, the reasons why our oceans are threatened, and the science behind sustainable fishing.
