The challenge is a series of 7 tasks to get people of all ages out to the coast and having fun while learning about some of the issues our Ocean faces. The Planet Aware Ocean Challengewas developed from an original idea suggested by University of Portsmouth marine biology student Kai Grundy.
The Challenge is aimed at people on the Isle of Wight and along the Solent coast and runs between now and 6 September but can be done anywhere in the UK.
Anyone who completes all or some of the challenges can get a certificate emailed at the end to show they have taken part.
Planet Aware’s Sarah Marshall said, “This is a great opportunity for families as well as individuals to start thinking more of the challenges that face our Oceans at the same time as getting involved in some fun activities. This is the first year of the challenge and we’d love feedback from those who take it on to develop it further for next year.”
