A DECADE OF MERITO!

Ten years ago we embarked on an incredible journey dedicated to protecting our oceans and empowering multicultural youth and their communities. Through engaging environmental education, community science research, impactful marine conservation efforts, and green entrepreneurship projects, we have made significant strides in protecting the oceanic ecosystems we cherish. As we reflect on our accomplishments, we are deeply humbled by the support of our dedicated supporters and partners. Together, we have fostered an environment where our diverse coastal communities come together to nurture our shared ocean.
