Review for SAVE THE WHALES INC, Seaside, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a teacher who hired this program to give an in-class presentation. It was an excellent, engaging mix of hands-on activities and presentation format.

Tom arrived in plenty of time to set up his sizable collection of equipment. The show was about sea turtles. I learned a lot, and the students were still talking about it weeks later. The thing that made the biggest impression on them was how plastic bags end up looking like sea jellies and get ingested by leatherback turtles, who then can't get the bags out because of the sharp barbs in their throats (evolved to capture and retain the jellies). This can lead to obstructions, and in some cases, even death.

The students mentioned some of the content taught by Tom in their year-end summary. I would love to see this program grow and reach more schools.
