Our Vision



About Saltwater Classroom


Saltwater Classroom is 501(c)3 non-profit that strives to inspire an ethic of global ocean stewardship in today's youth through an innovative approach to environmental education. 

Through hands-on education and thoughtful and engaging virtual programming, Saltwater Classroom connects young students to the ocean in new and meaningful ways, sparking a passion for our oceans.

No matter what corner of the planet, our oceans are in trouble. With devastating threats ranging from ocean acidification and habitat loss, to overfishing and plastic pollution, the oceans need our help.

Now, more than ever, we must come together as global citizens and drive sustainable change for our oceans.

This starts with education.

And that is where Saltwater Classroom comes in.
