Education for Teachers

The Oceanic Society is expanding its educational programs for teachers. 

Gray Whales in the School

The Oceanic Society and the San Francisco Bay chapter of the American Cetacean Society are proud to announce our new marine mammal school program, Gray Whales in the Schools!

For the past 30 years, The Oceanic Society has led whale watching trips around San Francisco.  We are now offering the opportunity to share this remarkable experience with students around the Bay Area for a nominal fee.  We will come to your classroom and provide a dynamic and informative presentation which will introduce students to our “local” Gray whales; they have the longest migration of any mammal, and pass up and down our coast each year during their annual migration.   These whales are a real success story, with their population making a recovery from whaling! However, these whales still face a variety of dangers during their migration and threats their survival, and we hope to educate and inspire and inform a new generation of ocean conservationists!

One of the Oceanic Society expert naturalists will come to your school for a program that we hope will be one of the highlights of your school year!  A single program may last 45-90 minutes, and can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

Marine Mammal Educational Program

This is one of the most unique and comprehensive classroom programs available in this field. The Oceanic Society, with the support of University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, is proud to present our new marine mammal education program.

This program brings science into the classroom through lectures by real field researchers, as well as videos, slide shows, and activities. Presentations include topics ranging from dolphin echolocation to humpback whale migration to how to become a scientist. You can chose from one of the many exciting options below (more to come later). The fee is only $20 per workshop.
