Kids' Pages on Oil in the Sea DLESE Reviewed Collection
Several agencies and organizations working to prevent discharges of oils into the marine and coastal environment offer educational material and special activities for children and students. The overall purpose of these efforts is to make young people familiar with the marine environment, encourage them to care about it, and understand the consequences of abusing it. Several of the educational websites also contain practical experiments for students to learn about the behavior and effects of oil in the marine environment.
