Defenders of the Blue is our keystone community program introducing learners to the diverse and fascinating marine life inhabiting our local shores. Engaging with children from across the Cape Metropole, our tactile beach and rock pool based snorkeling course is orientated towards cultivating leadership skills and team work through encouraging a passion for the underwater world.
Born from Shamiers infectious love for sharing the ocean with local youth, our course is geared to build relationships with each group of learners while educating them about our coastal ecology and how to mitigate the effects of pollution. At the end of the year, three #STBP youth ambassadors are chosen to assist in mentoring youth in future Defenders of the Blue programs.
We rely on donations and the support of volunteers to facilitate our five week program at no cost to the schools chosen for participation. Please get in touch should you wish to contribute equipment, nutritious snacks, your time or expertise.
