The Youth Guide to the Ocean

YUNGA Youth Guides are designed to give you even deeper insights into core topics. They allow you to explore each theme more closely, building a detailed understanding of the issues at hand and the ways in which you can get involved. They also contain links to additional resources and information so you can keep learning independently.

The Youth Guide to the Ocean illustrates the many wonders of the ocean, what the ocean does for us and what we are doing to the ocean. At the end of the Guide you’ll find a simple but effective strategy for setting up an action plan to undertake your very own conservation project. What are you waiting for? Get involved!
