Ocean Connectors was created in 2007 to address environmental education issues in communities of San Diego County, and we have now reached over 10,000 children in this area. Though widely known as a pristine coastal destination, disadvantaged communities in this urban hub can lack access to parks, safe outdoor recreation, and open space, which in turn leads to a lack of environmental awareness and understanding. This need led to the creation of Ocean Connectors, and to our mission of Connecting Youth for Conservation. We use migratory marine life to educate, inspire, and connect underserved youth living in Pacific coastal communities of the U.S. and Mexico, through classroom activities, coastal field trips, bilingual knowledge exchanges, and STEM programs.
