National Geographic has created an education program to raise awareness about the ocean and it invites surfers and surf schools to get involved.
Working at National Geographic has always been my dream job. The stories that National Geographic tells are about the earth, history and the ocean. These stories might not make the evening news but they are fascinating, important and impact each and every one of us.

The National Geographic Ocean Education Program aims to engage and collaborate with the marine recreation community (us) with the goal of raising public awareness about ocean conservation and inspiring people to help protect the vital natural resources that the ocean provides.

The Ocean Initiative is a great way to get involved. If you are interested in running a program perhaps with a school group or at your local surf club, there is a whole Tool Kit available on the site including some great planning material.
