Inspire the Next Generation of Ocean Activists by David Helvarg
Static Preview

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.

To order his book from Amazon, click on the image or visit your local bookstore.


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.
