Zoo Outreach Organisation – India

The project aims to equip teachers in coastal parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala with knowledge about the Indian ocean focusing on biodiversity, fisheries, livelihoods and an overview of the 7 principles of ocean literacy.

This will be done by developing an ocean literacy manual for teachers and training them so that they can communicate that knowledge to their students and communities and take tangible actions to protect this crucial ecosystem. It is novel because, for the first-time, teachers will be co-creating with us, the content and perspectives from indigenous, ocean-dependent communities, policymakers, and religious heads. The manual aims to highlight that ocean education is universal, impacting both inland and coastal areas, emphasizing the interconnectedness of inland actions with ocean outcomes. The project aims to underscore the imperative and ease of integrating ocean literacy into curricula, irrespective of educational standards.
