MEETING COMMUNITY NEEDS
Our children hear about and experience many of the bad things about living in Los Angeles…crime, poverty, earthquakes, the high cost of living, lack of jobs and deterioration of the environment. They are also aware of urban run-off, marine debris, beach litter, plastic, oil, grease and other sources of pollution. This constant stream of negative information both frightens and overwhelms children. The program goes directly to schools and addresses these concerns and the need for recycling and litter reduction by focusing on how these issues impact the health of the Los Angeles area marine environment, and empowering the children.
