The San Francisco Bay American Cetacean Society chapter believes that the solution to the threats facing whales, dolphins, porpoises, and their habitats begins with educating people worldwide about these magnificent ambassadors of the oceans.
SF Bay ACS has a variety of educational programs which are of interest to both global and local audiences. The educational resources available on this site include easy-to-understand teaching aids for self-study, traditional curricula, public information on issues, and reprints of scientific articles from past publications.
SF Bay ACS chapter representatives regularly attend local, regional, and statewide events, fairs, and whale festivals. Each event is an opportunity to highlight ACS’s mission-based programs and to encourage concerned and interested members of the lay community to consider supporting ACS’s work through membership and/or tax-deductible giving programs.
We work with schools from Citizen Science schools teaching a 10 week curriculum class to creating Student Ocean Clubs (in all levels of schools from elementary to college) working on cetacean/ocean habitat issues and advocacy.
If you would like to create a program or club please contact us and we will be happy to work with you and your students. The students are the future of our oceans conservation and their inhabitants!
