You can only save it when you know how

By Tyrone Bennett | President

Dear Supporters,

 

It’s true we only have one chance left to save our Ocean. People like Sir David Attenborough has even stepped out of his comfort zone and joined Instagram to share this critical issue. 

 

Over the years our actions have led to a serious issue of overcrowded oceans of plastic and we have seen a number of wildlife in our oceans becoming victims of eating plastic. With alarming high temperatures of our ocean and planet and the fact that we will have more plastic in our ocean than fish by 2050 we truly do only have one chance left to make a critical change. 

 

Fiji is made up of a number of Islands yet a number of the local children live unaware of what lives in the ocean, the issue and how to recycle. We have been working on a number of projects in the community and now we are actively fundraising to launch this project. Currently we have not raised any funds to kick start it but we hope over the next 3 months with your support we can really start kicking this project off. Depending on funding we aim to use a number of methods to engage young people in educating and showcasing the beautiful ocean and hopefully inspire them to stand up and help lead the action of change. 

 

With your generous support and donations we plan to fund ocean conservation book drives for all the local schools, fund roadshows and educational awareness lessons in schools and the local community and eventually funds permitting actually get the youngster really engaged by getting them into the ocean and using snorkel equipment we fund to help them actually see the ocean and what lies beneath. 

 

We have been successfully running a similar project in Asia and Africa but it is important for us to ensure we engage young people from all around the world to ensure we work as a global community to save the ocean as this really is our last chance. 

 

Thank you for your support!

 

With Gratitude,

 

Fiji Conservation Education
