Teach ocean sustainability

Welcome to our teaching and learning resources area, and discover how you can help keep our oceans healthy for generations to come.

We have created many informative, educational and fun materials for preschool and secondary school students and invite you to download and use these.  

Use our curriculum-relevant resources for ages 10-15 and meet the Wild Ocean Explorers, who are ready to take children under 8 on a trip to the ocean with our fun and creative activities.

Please use our award-winning film (below), created with young people and their teachers in mind in which we 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.
