11 Years of Sea Camp Fun in San Salvador

After all this time, children in San Salvador are still enjoying BREEFs Summer Sea Camps.

Over five days in July, campers got to explore seagrass beds,

snorkel an open water reef,

and decorate garbage cans that were placed around the island, in the hopes of reducing plastic pollution.

This years’ Sea Camp focused on marine plastics pollution.

Campers were given a presentation on plastic pollution and dissected an Albatross bolus (a small mass of chewed food) to look for plastics.

BREEFs’ Summer Sea Camps seek to give campers a greater appreciation for our marine environment and the benefits it provides to the culture and economy of The Bahamas.

Special thanks to Gerace Research Center, Seacology and San Salvador Living Jewels Foundation for their support of this years’ San Salvador Sea Camp.
