In Summer 2019, the Shark Lab released a comic book for kids on how be safe at the beach (Beach Days – Share the Waves) and learn to share the ocean with marine life. Lessons include how to identify and avoid rip-currents, injured marine mammals, jellyfish, stingrays, and sharks. The comic books will be distributed to junior lifeguard programs and kids ages 8-12. We are also creating a curriculum to go along with the comic book that will have various activities and lessons for students.
Because of the popularity of the first Beach Days comic book the Shark Lab produced another comic book in Summer 2020 to teach kids about marine pollution (Beach Days – Save the Waves).
