How Education Encourages Action –
Our Student Outreach Program

Knowing exactly what the problem is helps breed inspiration and determination – especially in youth. Our outreach program ensures the facts are known and works towards building a common base line of understanding on climate and ocean science. 

We visit schools throughout Canada to present the threats our oceans face, give youth the tools to take action, empower them to come up with their own solutions and give them reasons why there’s hope for our oceans if we take action now.

Sponsor Canada’s Shorelines

Every $25 protects 1 kilometer of Canada’s shores. Lakes, rivers, ocean…it’s all important.

Garbage on the side of the road will find its way to water, and all water runs to the ocean. Rivers are now the main running tap of plastic entering our oceans.

Plastic likes to travel – let's make sure it doesn’t get the chance. Eradicating plastic impact in Canada helps clean up the rest of the world. When you donate, your money goes towards:
