Sanibel Sea School

County: Lee
Categories Environment
Details: Sanibel Sea School is a non-profit foundation teaching children about the ocean. Our goal is to save the ocean one person at a time.

We look to a world where all people value, understand and care for the ocean.

Sanibel Sea School is dedicated to vibrantly teaching children and adults about marine ecosystems. We use the barrier island habitats of Sanibel and Captiva to give our students an opportunity to touch, feel, and understand their natural surroundings in a field setting.

Through their experiences, students develop an intimate bond with the ocean and its inhabitants, and gain an enhanced awareness of the tightly woven fabric of our global environment. Sanibel Sea School's programs foster a sense of wonder in regards to the marine world, leaving participants eager to learn more and enthusiastic about practicing good ocean stewardship.

Our programs cover all that encompasses marine ecosystems - animals, people, plants, land, ocean and weather.

Thanks to the nature of field education, Sanibel Sea School provides a rich ocean experience that will invigorate students for a lifetime of appreciation and responsibility.

We offer transformative education - it's more than an experience - It changes the way we live.
Job Description: This is unique opportunity for a volunteer to make a valuable contribution, and at the same time, to learn through experience, a wide array of skills applicable to many situations in life. A volunteer would assist in the preparation and instruction of our educational program and experience the process of guiding young children as they explore nature and further their understanding of the natural world that surrounds them.
