Each of the Coral Summer Camp projects have their own unique objectives to protect the oceans. The Blue Shark team with their “Ocean Rescue Mission” and “Colors of Ocean Life” projects aim at educating students and instilling them with a love of nature through workshops, ocean drawing contests and garbage cleanups. The Soul of the Sea team has a strong background in Geography and is developing an ambitious project to apply remote GIS sensing to assess the deterioration of the Cham Island reef. Team Three with their “Ecological Footprints” project, held a 21-day summer camp in an entirely ecological marine environment to instill young people with a love of the sea.
