PROGRAM DETAILS

As seafood consumers in India, we are often unaware of the ecology of the wild marine life that we consume as ‘seafood’ and know even less about the importance of the oceanic ecosystems they inhabit before they reach our plates. This poses the risk of making uninformed seafood choices that puts significant pressure on our already fragile oceans.

For the next one year we will be designing and conducting a series of immersive education programs to bring an awareness to our oceans and marine species that we most commonly consider seafood.

PROGRAM DETAILS

This virtual ocean program is meant to be a starting point or let’s say a dive into the lives, minds and relationships of marine animals. Animals in the ocean lead interesting and busy lives. They think, plan, help, cheat! Sound familiar? There is a lot that we can learn from our underwater neighbours. From dolphins and shrimps, to octopuses and reef fish!

Topics we will cover:

· How do marine animals sense their surroundings?

· Can marine animals think and feel?

· Interactions and relationships between animals in the ocean

· How understanding animal behaviour can help ocean conservation

The fee for this program per person is INR 1000

This program is open to anyone interested! You do not need to have any diving/in water experience.

PROGRAM DETAILS

In this virtual program, we familiarize ourselves with one of the most fascinating forms of life on earth - the spider.

We explore the mysterious origins of the modern spider. Both from an evolutionary perspective as well as their impact on human culture and perception through history. This leads us into more detailed sessions about our eight-legged cohabitants.

· Session 1 - The ecological and cultural history of spiders - In our first module we look at how long spiders have been on earth and the fascinating adaptations that have allowed them to thrive in a wide range of habitats. We'll also explore the relationships between humans and spiders, and take a brief look at the concept of Arachnophobia.

· Session 2 – Inside the lives of nature’s most creative predators – A look at the two broad ways in which spiders hunt. We’ll look at how web-building spiders use their webs and wit to outsmart prey. We’ll also look spiders that don’t build webs but use everything from powerful night-vision to superintelligence.

The fee for this program per person is INR 1000

Today, ocean experiences like SCUBA diving, snorkelling and tide pooling are becoming more accessible. The time is ripe to talk about the little known architects of an underwater world that supports at least a quarter of our marine diversity, provide us food, protect our coastlines and give us a space to immerse ourselves in nature, beauty and find peace.

Topics we will cover:

· What are corals? Are they plants or animals? 

· The brilliant, colourful, diverse world of corals

· Corals and the numerous relationships they are involved in on a reef.

· Threats to coral reefs and why coral conservation should be our priority

  • How many types of sharks are there? Learning about some strange and beautiful sharks.
