Passing the Passion to the Kids

There are not many children (and adults) who are not fascinated by whales and dolphins. Therefore it is quite easy to capture their attention and to carry our fire and passion to classrooms. This is not only highly rewarding, it is also a great way to teach the next generation about the whales’ lives, to raise their awareness for global environmental issues and our need to protect them for all generations to come.

Our environmental education program offers unique courses, workshops, talks, materials and educational resources for teachers.
