The foundation has set up a special contest on coral reefs towards schoold children from 9 to 11 years old from the island of Moorea. This contest is the last step of an educational project conducted since the beginning of the school year regarding the conservation of coral reefs and for a better understanding of the protected areas into the lagoon of Moorea.
Supported by the Fondation pour la Nature et l’Homme and in partnership with the Direction of Primary School and the City hall of Moorea Maiao, this project aimes at a better understanding of the marine laws set up for the lagoon of Moorea since 2005. At least, 7 classerooms, around 300 school chilren participated to the project divided into 2 steps. The first one was based on information about the laws of the lagoon of Moorea during classes. Then, educators from Te mana o te moana made the children visit an underwater trail realised by the foundation, in order to make them aware by the importance of respecting the rules set up. To finalise the project, a special contest is organised, that will be celebrated on June 8th for the World Ocean day.
