Dive in with empowering environmental speaker Annie Crawley and her team as they launch 100 schools 100 days: Our Ocean & You to give the ocean a voice. Every breath we take connects us to the sea. Our Ocean & YOU awes audiences about the interdependence we have with the ocean and empowers you to take action. Life on our planet needs a healthy ocean. The ocean is responsible for more than 50% of the oxygen in every breath we take and contains 97% of our planet’s water. Three billion people rely on the protein from the sea in order to live. We have one ocean and need to work together in order to protect it.
Environmental speaker and underwater photographer Annie shares her amazing images and stories about “myths and monsters” of the sea. The multi-media experiences share both the beauty of our underwater world and the environmental challenges facing our planet from impacts of climate change and marine debris. Annie traveled to the North Pacific Gyre, more commonly known as the Garbage Patch aboard the SEAPLEX expedition. She balances her presentations with both love for our ocean and the truth about the sea of plastic we have created.
100 Schools 100 Days Our Ocean and YOU is launching in King County and Snohomish County of Washington State. If you would like to bring this campaign to your school, please email or call to book. Our most important goal is to raise awareness and encourage people to be the voice for our ocean.
1. Take the pledge to be the voice for our ocean and share your stories as you participate in solving ocean problems. We want you to use the #LoveOurOcean on any photo, video, story you post on social media linking you to the ocean. After all we come from the sea and we are all ocean!
2. Rethink your relationship with plastic. Refuse single-use plastic which is plastic you use once and throw away. Plastic does NOT biodegrade, it photodegrades which means it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces and has a shelf life of 500-1000 years. Now that you know this, we hope every time you refuse single use plastic, you will share your story, photos and video with us using the #RefuseSUP Every single piece of plastic that has ever been created is still on our planet today.
3. Donate or Sponsor. Help Annie and her crew visit more schools. The more we raise, the farther we reach. Please consider donating your time, expertise, or cash to help us move this ocean issue forward. Our goal is to reach 50,000 students within King County and Snohomish Counties who will then be encouraged to share with their families and communities.
Children are 40% of our population and 100% of our future. When you reach a child, you change history. Give the gift of the Ocean today!
