This #EarthDay, the National Geographic Society is illuminating, celebrating, and protecting the beating blue heart of our planet. National Geographic has created a suite of free resources that will take young people on a deep dive of the Earth’s ocean. To help engage as many learners as possible as we celebrate Earth Day, I encourage you to share this Earth Day Guide with educators and families in your community. Click here to access the National Geographic Earth Day Guide. The guide contains ocean-focused activities and resources that can be accessed for free worldwide, including: A Virtual Field Trip with National Geographic Explorers who will share and explore whale culture, seamounts in the Galápagos Islands, and the power of eco-journalism to protect the ocean. Explorer Classroom, a live YouTube show that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers, either in real time or on demand. The special Earth Day event will teach viewers about pristine places in the ocean to understand why they are threatened and how to help protect them. Citizen Science Projects for young people of all ages interested in becoming solution-seekers and changemakers protecting the ocean.
