Sharks4Kids Targets Future Generations Through Education


Sharks4Kids aims to improve the fate of sharks, raise awareness and conservation by targeting future generations with outreach and education programs.

The organization provides a wide range of learning opportunities for kids and educators that can be delivered directly in class or through homes school groups. Lessons connect kids to individuals working in the wild with sharks to have firsthand feedback about them.

The organization also works to deliver field trips in the Bahamas and south Florida, so students can see and experience firsthand what shark conservation — including tagging — is like. Sharks4Kids also provides a wide range of resources that can be used to inform and teach children about various aspects of sharks, from anatomy to senses and reproduction.

From 2013-2020, Sharks4Kids has educated nearly 16,000 across the world. Commenting on their activity Jillian Morris, founder and president of Sharks4Kids, said:

“Kids have a voice and they are more powerful than they realize. We want to empower and inspire them to help save sharks and the oceans.”
