This year Sea Fest 2020 moved into the virtual world due to Covid 19, so the Marine Institute and their partners produced amazing online resources and we are showing you some of the highlights.
Over the past 10 weeks, the Marine Institute and friends have been celebrating our seas through the Oceans of Learning series offering news and online activities on a range of marine topics.
Following the success of the campaign, RTÉjr will now feature the series on rte.ie/learn. RTÉ Learn will highlight videos, interactive activities and downloadable resources.
Ireland's marine resource is ten times the size of its land territory and this week we will be exploring Ireland’s coastal waters- from the food provided by our ocean, our rich marine biodiversity, changing ocean climate, shipwrecks and seabed mapping, as well as the impact the ocean has on our health and well-being.
The Marine Institute worked with Government Departments and partners such as Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Bord Bia, National Maritime College Ireland, The Commissioners of Irish Lights, Met Éireann, Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI) and coastal communities and organisations across Ireland to enable everyone to engage with our ocean from anywhere.
From Monday the series will be featured in on RTÉ Learn, with a huge amount of resources to help us understand what is all around the Island of Irealand - our oceans.
