Victoria School Field Trips
Ocean Ambassadors Canada is a not-for-profit company that is turning the tide of marine pollution by getting students to the ocean, educating them about the threat of plastics and the importance of ocean health, and empowering them to make real change. We provide students in the Victoria and the Lower Mainland with inspiring educational experiences in our on-the-beach programs. Our programs are receiving rave reviews from teachers and students.
Grade 7 to 9 Field-trip Program:
Ocean Health Inquiry
In this 5 hour program students investigate marine animals, seaweed, biodiversity, how the ocean has changed since it was originally cared for by the First Peoples, and how humans negatively impact the health of our ocean.
Grade 4 to 6 Field-trip Program:
In this 4-hour workshop, students explore the ecology of the shoreline and take part in a hands-on educational workshop on the beach in addition to becoming more aware of their social and environmental responsibilities.
Grades 1 to 3 Field-trip Program:
Gumboots – Water and our Relationship with the Environment
In this 4-hour workshop, students explore the ecology of the shoreline and take part in a hands-on educational workshop on the beach.
Enjoying the Ocean
Older students with wetsuits and stand-up paddle-boards will paddle with certified instructors and experience the ocean — kelp, seals, jellyfish and all. Younger students with gumboots will explore the shoreline.
Learning the Issues
Via classroom activities and an interactive, on-the-beach workshop, participants will learn about plastic pollution, ocean life and human health.
Participants are challenged to rethink our use of plastics and empowered to make changes in their own lives—from avoiding throwaway plastics to organizing beach clean-ups and zero-waste initiatives
