David Helvarg of the Blue Frontier Campaign discusses 50 Ways to Save the Ocean program designed to equip individuals with the tools to make a difference for our oceans. We are looking to use this tool to inspire the next wave of ocean activists by bringing it into classrooms using our teaching guides. We have recently completed a guide compiling already-existing lesson plans aimed at grades 9-12 that relate to the 50 Ways. This document is featured on National Geographic's Ocean Education's website.

We are now working on original lesson plans for grades K-2. Funding for this program would enable us to complete the K-2 lesson plans, conduct outreach to educators and create opportunities for illustrator Jim Toomey (creator of theSherman's Lagoon cartoon strip) and author David Helvarg to present 50 Ways in educational settings.
Blue Frontier Campaign is a proven leader in building the solution-based constituency needed to protect our ocean, our coasts and the communities that depend upon them. We work to highlight the economic, environmental, recreational and spiritual benefits of healthy and abundant seas, understanding that the environment doesn't end at the shoreline and that if we school together, we can make a difference.

Oceans are silently choking on our plastic waste. Plastic and synthetic materials are the most common types of debris in our oceans and are having horrific impacts on marine wildlife and systems. As an island continent "girt by sea" marine debris is of particular importance for Australia. Creatures get entangled in plastics and drown and ingested concentrated toxins from plastics pose a threat to the health of the food chain. Plastics also transport and introduce species into new environments. Anja Taylor catches up with the CSIRO research team spearheading the Marine Debris Survey, a world first study of the plastics around our coastline.
