If you have signed up for the Unite for the Sea E-Programme, then you may have already (or may soon be receiving) what we call a Unite for the Sea Resource Bag.  This bag has materials and supplies to participate in a handful of fun and education activities planned out for you by marine biologist Lenette Lewis!  Many of the videos on our website connect with the activities that Lenette has put together for you. So explore this website to discover fun pages with great information and links to videos and activities!

If you haven’t signed up for the E-Programme, but you would like to, email us at kickstartbvi@gmail.com and if there’s still space in the programme, we’ll try to get you a Resource Bag!

Ready To Dive In?

In 2020 a range of fun activities are being offered from swimming, snorkeling & diving lessons to virtual tours with a marine biologist through exquisite mangrove habitats, visits to recycling facilities, ‘bite-size science’ experiments such as water quality testing, art contests and so much more!

Unite for the Sea 2020 Themes

Programme Themes

Every summer we pick a different theme to focus our attention on as our goal is to over the years inspire a generation of ocean conservation advocates.  Last summer we learned about endangered species of sea turtles and what we can do to try to protect them.  This summer, the core themes are: 

 

  • Plastic pollution: Its effect on the ocean (& how you can help!)
  • Mangroves: Their critical value for healthy ecosystems (& how you can help rehabilitate them).
  • Water Quality: Why is it important (& what you can do to improve it).
When does the programme begin?

The 2020 programme began in August and though some of it has already been completed, the exciting E-Programme full of activities and resources will continue on into October 2020 so please still register. We may not be able to guarantee you a swim, snorkel or dive lesson as most of those were sponsored during the summer months but we may still have space in our E-Programme).

What types of activities are available?

Unite for the Sea includes a variety of educational, in-person, and online activities for participants. You can learn more by visiting the theme-specific pages.
