Rue’s Journey: Marine Conservation for Children
Mentor: Dr. Thor Veen
How can we create awareness around marine conservation? Marine conservation, education, and science communication are fields that tackle the complexities of this question. Imaginative and receptive, children are the perfect target audience for learning the importance of marine conservation. Art-based media are important in conveying serious material in a fun, hands-on manner. Through the creation of a children’s book that encompasses different marine conservation threats found in Pacific Northwest waters, I hope to create a platform for young minds to explore the roles that marine species play in local ecosystems, while simultaneously creating space for youth to foster future marine conservation initiatives.
