SAVE THE WHALES INC
March 9, 2011

Save the Whales, Inc. has been coming to our school site for almost 5 years now. Each year the children learn about the importance of maintaining our ocean habitable for marine life through hands-on activities and their visual presentation. The Save the Whales presenters come well-prepared with objects related to ocean life (krill, whale vertebra, posters, water activities, and a rope that is the size of a whale among some things). The classes are engaged in learning by listening to whale sounds, watching the whales, and viewing some artifacts that relate to the marine mammals. At the end, the kids are encouraged to do their part to help conserve our oceans by not littering and helping to reduce the use of plastic.

We have playground clean-ups so the seagulls will not have any litter to eat when they fly around our school site.

Ways to make it better...

I would make sure Save the Whales was available to all age groups in a school site.
