Our latest collaboration with Skype In The Classroom, the #SkypeBunceeBuddies Oceans Day project, celebrates Ocean Conservation and World Oceans Day (June 8th). To inspire your classrooms' ocean creations and your future scientists, world-renowned professional surfer, and conservationist, Will Skudin, along with ocean conservationist, Jen Hanono, and marine researcher, Colin Wirth, have created Buncees to share their experiences conserving our oceans!
Scroll through the Buncees below with your students as an introduction to your Oceans Day lesson. Inspire your students to be the change for the United Nation's Goal 14: Life Below Water! A huge thanks to both Will, Jen, and Colin for sharing their passion for our blue planet.
