Today we opened the doors to our new art installation, “The Man and the Sea.” In the gallery, you can explore the modern-day relationships between humans and our oceans through displays of marine displays, art created by local children, and multimedia exhibits regarding the effects of human activity on marine life.
During our three-day workshop, 22 children (ages 3-18) learned about local marine ecology and created beautiful works of art. Since these children live in the small coastal village of Arroyo Seco, where many of their parents are fishermen, they were selected for this project to learn about the impact that we as humans have on the ocean and marine life.
On July 28, we welcomed 38 children (ages 5-15) and parents from Melaque to our Sea Turtle Protection & Conservation Center (STPCC). The children spent the evening with Alejandro Peña, our biologist and STPCC director, who taught them about their important role in sea turtle conservation.
