It is important for all of us to understand the dangers that the world faces, and to do all we can to educate our children on how they can make a positive impact on the environment – after all, every little helps!
Some schools find it important to teach their pupils about the importance of conservation, however it isn’t always a required part of the school curriculum. This means that children around the world aren’t receiving a full understanding of the issues affecting our planet.
The oceans, in particular, need serious investment and attention when it comes to conservation. If you want to teach your child about the importance of marine conservation, and what they can do, here’s our tips on helping marine life.
14% of all litter comes from drinks containers, and this doesn’t even include bottle caps and labels.
Teach your children the importance of recycling, and encourage them to use reusable drinks bottles and food containers, such as lunch boxes. This can have a big impact, as it will reduce the amount of disposable plastic you use and waste.
Why not make it part of your weekly routine to work together to sort the recycling out? You could treat your little one to some extra time reading or a trip out as a reward!
Take Part In Beach Cleans!
Beach cleans are an awesome way to meet new people, whilst cleaning up our shores from rubbish. It’s important to ensure the beach clean you are involved is recognised by an environmental organisation and follows the correct health and safety procedures, such as Save Our Beach and Love My Beach.
Many attractions, such as SEA LIFE Blackpool, reward those who take part in beach cleans by offering free or discounted entry after the big event – so you and the family can make a day out of it!
Watch Your Water
All these small efforts will have an impact on the oceans, as they will result in less of the runoff and wastewater that pollute the oceans.
Learn About The Underseas
Visiting places like SEA LIFE Blackpool is an excellent way to learn about creatures we aren’t usually able to see up-close, such as black tip reef sharks, stingrays, and starfish.
Keep up with your underwater knowledge with more facts about the planet as well as some jaw-some facts about sharks.
