The “Stow It-Don’t Throw It” Project invites youth (and adult volunteers) to join us for our first Youth Ocean Conservation Summit, which is designed to allow youth participants to learn from marine scientists and conservationists about the current threats facing marine ecosystems, both locally and globally. Participants will learn what other youth are already doing to help tackle some of these issues, and they will be given a chance to work with their peers to develop action plans for their own ocean conservation projects.
