An Ocean Guardian School makes a commitment to the protection and conservation of its local watersheds, the world's ocean, and special ocean areas, like national marine sanctuaries. The school makes this commitment by proposing and then implementing a school- or community-based conservation project.
An Ocean Guardian School:
- provides project(s) for students related to the conservation of local watersheds, the world's ocean, and/or special ocean areas, like national marine sanctuaries.
- provides opportunities for students, teachers, parents and friends to participate in a range of environmental and sustainable activities.
- provides learning programs and opportunities that reflect environmentally sustainable practices that enable all students to be environmentally active and committed "Ocean Guardians."
- provides ways for classrooms to promote best environmental practices within local communities, while at the same time projecting a positive image of the school itself.
