TERRA OUTREACH

We conduct in-house outreach activities that are ongoing (run continuously) to raise awareness about issues that commonly affect the environment, in general, and marine conservation, in particular. These activities are not charged. We also conduct workshops and offer experiential learning modules on request for which we charge a fees. These workshops and modules can be combined to form itineraries for young children, students, youth groups or voluntourism enthusiasts.

ECO MOVIE NIGHTS

As a collaborative venture with Saraya Ecostay (our venue partner), we run ‘Eco Movie Nights’ – a weekly screening of environmental documentaries. Post the screening of the film, we facilitate discussions about the themes explored in the film. Award winning films such as Chasing Coral, A Plastic Ocean & Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai, among many others, have been screened at Eco Movie Nights in the past.
