ConnectOcean believes that place-based learning is the most effective method to educate the next generation of marine conservationists and advocates. By conducting as much of our learning in the environment as possible, students gain hands-on experience and a deeper understanding and connection with the environment. 

We run a series of Explorer Programs that connect students with each coastal and marine zone. Each Program has a curriculum that embeds citizen science data collection.

In addition to our Explorer programs, we have partnered with PADI to provide a number of speciality diving courses that enable certified divers of all ages to gain skills and learn more about marine conservation. Learn more about our PADI marine conservation specialities here.
