Everyone can play a role in protecting our oceans and reefs-there are many actions you can take that will make a difference!
If you were in charge of protecting the ocean and coral reefs, what would you tell people they should do (or not do) to help keep marine life and their home healthy?
What actions can people take to protect our oceans and reefs? Choose one action, and create a message encouraging people what to do. How and why should they take action?
Bonus! Social Media Challenge
Students can earn an extra entry into our fantastic prize drawing at the Ridge to Reef Rendezvous by sharing their stewardship messages on their own social media accounts (Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook), using the hashtag #R2R10th in one of two ways:
1) post a photo of the artwork they entered into this contest, or
2) make a short video or caption a photo about the stewardship message they chose.
Social media posts must use the hashtag #R2R10th, and be posted by 9 am on Friday, October 25th in order to be entered into the drawing, and students must be present at the Ridge to Reef Rendezvous to claim prizes won in the drawing.
