UNCW MarineQuest Recieves NOAA Funding for Marine Debris Outreach Program
This fall UNCW MarineQuest will hit the road with its life-size inflatable whale classroom to educate upper elementary and middle school students about environmental issues related to marine debris. The yearlong project Traveling Through Trash: Coastal Migratory Animal Encounters with Marine Debris will serve rural schools in the coastal carolinas. The goals of the project are to increase student awareness of the sources of marine debris and to encourage their participation in ocean stewardship. For more information contact Dr. Kezios.
