In partnership with the talented team at Canvas of the Wild, The International SeaKeepers Society is excited to present the “Wildscapes Unveiled” educational outreach project. Our goal is to invite South Florida students to explore three vital native environments; the Everglades, Mangrove Forests, and the Western Central Atlantic Pelagic. Learning about how these places support the health of Florida’s ecology and economy, as well as the threatened species that play a role in maintaining these systems.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about these habitats through three interactive displays with embedded touchpoints that link to species and habitat information on the Canvas of the Wild knowledge base. An e-workbook will also accompany the murals, which will also guide students and teachers through each featured habitat display and provide supplemental curriculum.
Through the DISCOVERY Yacht Program, SeaKeepers staff works closely with yacht owners to increase programming for kids aboard vessels.
Our “Floating Classroom” program connects school groups with local marine educators who teach them about local waters and marine conservation. If you are a teacher or parent in South Florida looking for hands-on opportunities to get your kids excited about ocean conservation, or a marine educator looking for more opportunities to work with students, click below.
This program offers students in grades 9-12 to get hands-on experience with oceanographic research while educating the local community about marine conservation issues. Students will learn about marine science topics from local experts while receiving training in conducting scientific research and science communication. The goal of this program is to give young ocean ambassadors the tools to not only understand the problems that face our oceans but to make a difference on a large scale.

SeaKeepers and partners invite middle and highschool educators to apply for a two-day, three-night professional development opportunity in Miami, Florida. Through hands-on field experiences and research, teachers will use Biscayne Bay as a case study to explore anthropogenic impacts on different ecosystems found along coastal communities. Teachers will receive a Certificate of Completion for this professional development activity. Don’t miss out on this exciting professional development opportunity and apply today.
