A new educational tool is distributed since the beginning of this 2012-2013 schoolyear in all Primary schools of French Polynesia. The educational booklet on Humpback whale was created to raise awareness about whale protection in Polynesia, in the continuity of the Cetacean Observatory.
Funded by Total Polynesia, the booklet on Humpback Whale will help to better understand cetaceans and better act for the conservation of emblematic species in Polynesian waters. Edited in 12 0000 specimens, the booklet is dirtibuted to all children from 9 to 11 years old. Each child will receive a booklet. In total, more than 11 000 children will get its own booklet! Its content is adapted to the educational standards from the Direction of Primary School.
At the beginning of september, educators from the foundation will deliver specific programs into 12 classes of Tahiti and Moorea. Classerooms will be able to start their educational project and will become news observators of the Observatory networks. A contest is organized during the school year and the winners will be invited to celebrate the World Ocean Day on June 10th, 2013.
