Indiegogo Campaign to Fund Touch Tanks for Ocean Education


2015-06-26

Reef Check recently launched a new campaign to raise $20,000 in 40 days to fund touch tanks for ocean education.

It is shocking that just like in Haiti, 50% of school children in Los Angeles have never put a toe in the ocean, even though it's our city's "backyard." How can we expect future generations to preserve something that they know nothing about?

We intend to expand our education program by reaching out to underserved students in the Los Angeles Unified School District, bringing thousands of these kids to our new headquarters in Fisherman’s Village in Marina del Rey to learn about California and tropical marine life through touch tanks and interactive learning.

Visit the campaign page at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/aquaria-and-touch-tanks-for-ocean-education for more details and to contribute.

Together we can provide Hands-On Ocean Education for Underserved School Kids in Los Angeles!
