Read Aloud America—A Great Cause

Respect the Reef just donated 10 of our Hawaiian -themed children’s books to Read Aloud America. Read Aloud America promotes literacy, bonds families and builds communities of lifetime readers by encouraging reading aloud to children and families.

The Read Aloud Program brings families together to reconnect and share the joys of reading and being read to. Programs like RAP bond families and build strong communities, making a better society and [offering] a brighter future.

Jed Gaines—President/Founder Read Aloud America

A group like Read Aloud America is not the usual focus for Respect the Reef, but we love their mission so much that we wanted to show our support with some of our fun Hawaii-themed children’s books.

We Love COCO’s Ambassador Program!

Colorado Ocean Coalition's Ambassador Program

Colorado Ocean Coalition’s first 24 Ocean Ambassadors

The Colorado Ocean Coalition (COCO) received funding from the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, to start their Ocean Ambassadors Certification program.

With 30 hours of training, Ocean Ambassadors (OAs) are empowered with information such as, problems and solutions regarding marine conservation, plastic and other pollution issues, watershed health, marine sanctuary protection and legislation, how to best utilize social media, the art of public speaking, and much more!

This year, COCO has 24 new students in their program ready to get started promoting Ocean Awareness.

We donated 30 Respect the Reef Tees to the Ambassadors to support COCO’s new program! We are looking forward to what COCO and the OA’s accomplish this year!
