Reef Check Seeking Marine Science Educators

Reef Check Foundation

  • 34 people are interested

Reef Check Foundation is looking for volunteers to help out with EMBARC, our shipboard ocean education program in Marina del Rey. These trips are conducted aboard an actual whale-watch boat during the week and last about three hours (usually 10 am-1 pm). We teach 5th graders through 12th graders about the ocean’s value and its resources, the threats facing our oceans, and solutions to these problems. Students observe plankton collected on the trip through a microscope, touch and learn about live invertebrates brought onboard, and participate in water quality testing. Volunteering for this program requires some additional training.

Founded in 1996, the Reef Check Foundation exists to help preserve the oceans and reefs which are critical to our survival, yet are being destroyed. With headquarters in Los Angeles and volunteer teams in more than 90 countries and territories, Reef Check works to protect tropical coral reefs and California rocky reefs through education, research and conservation.
