The Marine Militia was founded in October 2011. After years of frustration, it was obvious that there was a lack of urgency being put on the conservation of our oceans. Shark finning, slaughtering of whales, the disgusting slaughter of the beautiful Manta Ray, humans discarding their garbage in our waters (creeks, rivers, lakes and oceans), destruction of coral reefs from natural and unnatural causes.
The Marine Militia’s main focus is education. We are working with elementary schools in North America and developing programs to address two different age groups. The primary students (grades 1 – 5) and the intermediate students (grades 6 and 7) and will teach them about ocean conservation and how they can get involved and make a difference. We are also working with governments and other organizations to be able to share this knowledge with children and adults in developing countries.
The Marine Militia is working independently and in partnerships with other organizations to provide support or to manage research and awareness campaigns. Coral reef health, research and data gathering; Shark and Ray finning/gilling and the illegal and/or inhumane hunting and handling tactics of cetaceans.
The Marine Militia is also available for tagging, photography (surface and underwater), data gathering, mapping and plotting project work. Contact us for more details.
