DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL TOOLS TO PROMOTE MARINE CONSERVATION IN THE BAHAMAS: LINKAGES AMONG RESEARCH, EDUCATION, AND CONSERVATION

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Education is critical for management of marine protected areas, particularly where resources for official enforcement are limited and compliance with regulations is largely determined by local communities. This presentation will describe how education has been linked with multi-disciplinary research on marine protected areas in The Bahamas. In addition to participation of students and faculty in fieldwork, the research provided the impetus for a complementary educational initiative to strengthen marine education across The Bahamas. The recently published guide, "Treasures in the Sea: Our Bahamian Marine Resources," provides educators with scientific information and engaging, hands-on activities to incorporate marine conservation concepts into their curriculum. The process of developing this resource involved a survey of existing educational materials, consultation with scientists on concepts to cover and accuracy of information, and extensive discussion with teachers to adapt activities for the Bahamian context and ensure that educational goals are addressed. Following initial training workshops in July 2007, teachers have led subsequent workshops for others in their schools and are implementing activities with students. The evaluation process includes collecting feedback from teachers and examining learning outcomes.
