NOAA Fisheries is committed to working with youth, educators, and community groups and other organizations to provide educational opportunities for our island communities. We are available for presentations, professional development support, and community events to showcase our ocean stewardship mission.

NOAA Fisheries staff visit classrooms to share about marine science and management.

Our program serves to highlight and explain how we manage our fisheries, protected species, and habitats that influence and support our region. The objective of the program is to seek and create opportunities to inform and educate the public of the region's mission and its impact on the economy and environment in the Pacific. This is accomplished by the following:

  • Holding and/or attending outreach events, producing brochures and fliers, and posting on social media platforms
  • Educating young people and growing stewards of the environment
  • Establishing the Pacific Islands region as a resource for the community for networking with community groups, schools, and other organizations
  • Promoting careers in marine sciences
  • Developing age-appropriate curriculum with teachers that supports the objectives of the Pacific Islands region
  • Designing resources and implementing strategies to increase communication and understanding between the agency, our constituents, and the general public
