Free - Protecting the big blue

The Blue Marine Foundation team will take classes on a journey to discover the importance of the ocean and how it can be protected. The lesson will examine how protecting the ocean is different to protecting habitats on land and look at how marine protected areas can conserve our ocean with a focus on Blue Marine Foundation’s work in Jersey.

Preparation

If you have never joined a live lesson before, visit the support centre, where you can find a range of technical and educational information.

Questions generated by your class can be submitted in advance via the Encounter Live tab in your profile.
