Beaverton, OR (PressExposure) October 30, 2009 -- SEE Turtles (http://www.seeturtles.org), a non-profit conservation project, has launched a new school outreach program that offers educational trips, fundraising tips, and school presentations. Sea turtles are a great way to teach students about ecology, conservation, and the ocean and our program has everything teachers need to engage their classes.
Our School Outreach Program includes: Educational Trips: Hands-on participation in scientific research on nesting beaches in Costa Rica and foraging areas of Baja California Sur (Mexico); School Presentations: Engaging presentations by sea turtle experts for your class or group; Fundraising Programs: Easy ways for your group to raise money for important turtle conservation programs; and Classroom Resources: Lesson plans on climate change, adaptations, food webs, and threats to sea turtles, as well as fact sheets and other resources.
SEE Turtles believes that education combined with hands-on participation in conservation programs is the best way to reach students and encourage them to become active citizens. These charismatic animals can inspire students to learn more about ocean ecology, geography, real world approaches to conservation, and much more.
