2010 Community and Educational Activities

Local School Outreach and Classroom Presentations: In February LSIESP researchers and Jordan Bailey of the NGO Philanthropiece met with the school teachers at the Ejido Luis Echeverria School to plan classroom presentations about Laguna San Ignacio’s marine life and, the importance of conserving the lagoon habitat, and the natural history of gray whales. LSIESP researchers gave 8 presentations to primary, secondary, and middle-school students. The following week LSIESP researchers collaborated with the Eco-Tour Companies, the natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), The Ocean Foundation (TOF), the International Community Foundation (ICF), and Philanthropiece to organize a whale-watching field trip for 105 of the students and their instructors, many of which had never seen a whale before.
