Grade 5 isn’t just learning about the ocean, they care about what happens to the ocean. To use their words: What we do to the oceans we do to ourselves. We depend on the ocean, but the ocean doesn’t depend on us.
There are many things we can do everyday to help our oceans, from reducing our energy consumption to cutting back on single use plastic. But there’s no simpler way to take care of our planet and our oceans than to pick up litter before it finds its way to a water way, and eventually the ocean. Here is a picture of our ocean cleanup crew at work during our field trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The world is better for each of us who take action for a healthier planet!
