Giving back to our youth, Waianae ocean educational outreach day

We had an awesome afternoon doing an ocean educational outreach presentation for a youth group last Saturday.  We started with a tag team ice breaker-chaser (that cracked everyone up).  Ocean Girl volunteers brought pocket-sized sustainable fish guides for each youth, we learned: correctly ID fish you have caught,  legal-sustainable size,  the seasonal times to eat or throw back.. We discussed many ways to live sustainable and care for our island and ocean.  The kids also got a terrific demonstration and lesson on how to throw net. The sharing, caring, and cultural connection:  powerful, inspiring, & uplifting!

Ocean Girl Project Gives back

For us, community is not just a place, but a way of life.  We strive to instill that sense of community and island values in all that we do. We are a force for positive action – bringing together volunteers, team members, clients, and the community; we know we can contribute every day. We believe it is our kuleana (responsibility) to do all that we can and this, truly will be our legacy.

Gratitude to Ocean Girl Project volunteers : Anne, Lucas, Luna, Sarah, Kaily and Brian!! Can’t wait for the next one!!

If you are an organization or school serving youth in our community, we’d love to introduce you to Ocean Girl Project girls surf camps and educational ocean outreach, email: colleen@oceangirlproject.com
