Magazine Post: Education Update

Education Update

by Guy Harvey Magazine Staff

In our previous issue, we outlined strategic education partnerships with Discovery Education, Ocean First Education, the Florida Department of Education, Florida Virtual School and various and sundry groups dedicated to the vital efforts of educating
our children. 

Since that time, the number of our partners has blossomed, confirming our theory that providing marine science education for K–12, college students and teachers is a major need. The concept of utilizing education as a way to preserve, protect and revive marine ecosystems has resonated with just about everyone — private citizens, public companies, as well as government and non-government organizations. 

It’s easy for each of us to identify the problems facing our troubled waters — overfishing, invasive species, coral reef diseases, plastics in our waterways, red tides, ocean acidification, loss of wetlands, agriculture runoff … and sadly the list goes on. What is much more difficult is implementing solutions to solve these issues on a local and global scale. Therein lies the incredible magic of education. The overall goal is to help students and teachers make a difference in the world by understanding that a healthy environment translates into a better life, a stronger economy, and a robust job market.
