Your donation will help us bring marine mammal programs into schools, community and student organizations.

Your donation will fund marine mammal education programs for students throughout the nation. Students learn about Taiji dolphin drive hunts and the issues surrounding whales in captivity. 

Successful Programs Completed

We have successfully completed three pilot programs in schools throughout the United States. A global history class in Oregon completed an in-depth analysis of the Taiji dolphin drive hunts, a student council led initiative in Chicago screened Blackfish, the documentary, and through a series of guest speakers debated the benefits and risks of captive belugas, orcas and dolphins; a High School in Maine examined threats to wild orca populations and honored captive orca and marine mammals through sculpture and grafiti art.

Dr. Naomi Rose Webcast to 500 Students

In September of 2014 Yo Oceans! facilitated a webcast to over 500 students featuring Dr. Naomi Rose who spoke about what happens to ocean biodiversity, cetacean social structures, when wild orca or dolphins are taken from their wild pods. 

Great Prep for Common Core

Lessons help students critical thinking and problem solving skills. Yo Oceans! will also provide need based mini-grants to teachers who wish to purchase literature or DVD's for the classroom. 

Dynamic Material for Learners of All Ages

Our programs appeal to people of all ages!
