The Sea & Learn program is multi-faceted.
Sea & Learn invites a variety of experts and scientists to collaborate, interact, and engage with the local community of Saba, as well as traveling tourists visiting the island. Local venues provide a casual learning environment to host evening multi-media presentations so that experts can share their research and knowledge and how it relates to local environment of Saba and the surrounding region.
All Saba students from kindergarten through secondary schools are taken out of the classroom to participate in nature field projects, both on land and the sea. Likewise, there are also terrestrial and marine field projects for adults. Exposure to our program is not just beneficial in the month of October. For example, this year’s program will allow a number of locals to assist with Saba’s coral nursery. Becoming a citizen scientist also translates to more local volunteering throughout the year and perhaps other areas within the community.
