In 2018, we launched a new collaboration with Connect Ocean, a business with an emphasis on scuba diving, lifeguard and swimming training, environmental education, and marine life research. A key part of their work is supporting local NGO´s and communities, and finding innovative ways to share their programs with local children.
As part of our environmental education programs, we created a four week unit on marine life in collaboration with the Connect Ocean team, who generously donated their staff time to the projects. The project included a water safety workshop at La Paz school to ensure that the children would be safe in the water, a boat tour of the Tamarindo Estuary, a intertidal explorer day at Playa Danta, and a coral reef and snorkeling day, also at Playa Danta.
Many thanks to Ernst and his incredible team for sharing their time and talents with our students!
