About Ocean School India
Ocean School is a Marine Biodiversity focused, conservation organization on a mission to protect, preserve and restore our oceans. Through educational awareness,
research, outdoors education, direct-action conservation and field projects, we empower various segments of our communities to take action for ocean health.
We are all connected to the ocean. We rely on it for food, water, tourism and clean energy. Two of every three breaths we take come from it. The ocean we know is also our first line of defence against climate change.
At the Ocean School we believe strongly that fortunately, we have the power to rebuild a resilient and vibrant ocean. Together, we can shape a sustainable future – for us, our children and future generations.

received a fabulous response explaining the interactive modules of Microplastics!
The inaugural day itself saw an outline of Building a Collaborative Ocean Education Network,Scientific Ocean Literacy,Capacity Building of Ocean Marine Scientists of the future.
Ocean School Education was founded by Scientist Idrees Babu and Elsie Gabriel Ecologist and Climate Change Educator, along with an expert team of researchers,divers, fishermen and University students.
Our in-person, reef site, ocean classrooms, mobile and digital programs help students explore the role scientific
investigations play in preserving marine life, and discover how our actions impact the world
around us. We’re proud to collaborate with audiences and educators of all backgrounds and
sizes outdoors at the ocean habitat.
The more youth understand and appreciate our oceans, the more scientifically equipped and inspired
they’ll be to automatically protect them.
Ocean School Research

researchers focus on ocean pollution including microplastics, endangered marine species under threat including
Sea cucumbers,whales, marine turtles, corals and reefs.
CITIZEN ACTION AND FIELD PROJECTS
We partner with local organizations and academia to run citizen
action programs with the primary aim to focus on science to support
the conservation challenges of the ocean.
