CARING FOR OUR OCEANS - EARTH WEEK 2018
"Caring for Our Oceans" was the theme for the EEAC's Celebration of Earth Week this year. Students learned about marine debris and plastics pollution, how it affects our waterways and what they can do to help.
This year our "Social Change" drive supported restoration efforts to help numerous bird species, including the Laysan Albatross, on
Midway Atoll, which is
part of the Northwest Hawaiian Islands National Marine Sanctuary (FriendsOfMidway.org). First, a huge thank you to all students, parents and teachers for supporting this effort. With your support, we raised over $4,400 from the three elementary schools, and Oak Hills families contributed over $1,600.
The Oak Hills class that raised the most funds was Mrs. Lokitz's 1th grade class and they have decided to name their albatross chick "Coral." Your generous donations will surely be put to good use to help all of the birds on Midway Atoll. You can check out a live bird cam of similar birds located on Kauai Here
