USJ ISE ocean protection tour raising awareness about the importance of ocean conservation
Incredible feeling to be able to witness first-hand the effects of plastic pollution and climate change on the wildlife and environment around us. Everyone was able to recognize how essential it is for us to come together in order to make protection of our oceans a priority.
Feeling the sense of excitement when it came to learning about the different species of marine life in the area. The tour provided opportunities for us to constructively ask questions, share our observations, and brainstorm ideas on how to better protect marine life from the current threats.
Meeting with the members of the research team, who delicately explained their research and thoughts on ocean protection. We felt truly informed and inspired to make a difference.
