Ocean Guardians Worskhops in action

Creating ocean awareness at scale

Less than 16% of youth that have participated in these Ocean Guardians Workshops, have ever worn a mask and snorkel before.

More than 1/3 can walk to the ocean but less than 36% can swim.


6,000 + Ocean Guardians trained since inception.
120 + Young people trained to deliver youth friendly ocean conservation programs, majority from the same communities they serve.
17,233 School learners have more knowledge on ocean conservation challenges and solutions.
Our blue planet may be divided by continents, but it is united by ocean
