ABOUT OCEAN CONNECTORS: Ocean Connectors was created in 2007 to address environmental education issues in communities of San Diego County, and we have now reached nearly 20,000 children in both the U.S. and Mexico.

Though widely known as a pristine coastal destination, disadvantaged residents in the urban hub of San Diego County can have inadequate access to parks, beaches, safe outdoor recreation, and open space, which results in a lack of environmental awareness and understanding. This led to the creation of Ocean Connectors, and to our vision of Connecting Youth for Conservation.

Our mission is to use migratory marine life to educate, inspire, and connect underserved youth living in Pacific coastal communities of the U.S. and Mexico, through classroom activities, coastal field trips, knowledge exchanges, and STEM programs.

Thank you for joining our cause and helping us foster the next generation of dedicated environmental heroes!
