Education is the best tool to engage people of all ages in conserving our coastal habitats and recreational fisheries. Conservation is important to all citizens, not just those who fish, boat, and dive, because it results in greater protections of our shared natural resources and sustains Florida’s multi-billion-dollar recreational fishing industry. The first and most critical step in becoming more knowledgeable, committed and effective advocates for conservation, is to develop a greater understanding of fish and the habitats they require.
The goal of our education program is to encourage conservation of our cherished fishery in all age groups.
Our comprehensive Flats Ecology Curriculum, built by Florida educators and scientists, uses the latest science to teach students in grades 2 – 12 about fish, their habitats, and the threats that they face.
