Education is the first step to Save Our Seas!
NAMEPA’s mission is to educate seafarers, students, and the public on marine environments, marine pollution, and the maritime industry.
We work to educate students of all ages on the necessary balance between commerce and conservation, and inspire students to use this knowledge to become better ocean stewards!
NAMEPA’s array of educational materials can be utilized by students, educators, parents, seafarers, and industry professionals. Our three NGSS-aligned curriculum guides provide interactive lessons for educators to adapt to their own classroom. Our activity book, flyers, and handouts can be used by anyone to educate others on the marine environment, marine pollution and how to prevent it, and the maritime industry.
