Update

Update July, 2017: The SJBEP hired Javier Cardona to implement the education outreach program. More than 200 talks and presentation were performed by the Outreach Coordinator, volunteers, staff, etc in this four year period. Three workshops with communities surrounding the SJBE were conducted by Kasey Jacobs to determine community values, concerns, observations and insights of climate change-related issues. Printed posters about adequate disposal of prescribed drugs and placed them around the metropolitan area. Additionally, a “Trash Free Waters” public service announcement was created. The designs of the campaign can be found in the following link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B32UgAQAyR8kRktxRklGMy0yQ3c.

Update March, 2012: The SJBEP has produced a broad collection of educational material including Corredor del Yaguazo’s coloring book, a State of the Estuary Report, presentations targeting our water quality campaigns. We also commissioned the film “Estuary’s Guardians”, and a DVD explaining how to plant mangroves and one on the Program’s artificial reef initiative. Also we refurbished our Internet page.

- State of the Estuary Report

- Generated 7 editions of News Letters (Wetlands, Estuary's watershed, bird, among others)

- A series of educational sleeves in full color

- A "Who we are? brochue presenting the SJBE and our Program

- An SJBEP Coloring Book

- Arrecifes Pro-ciudad Colring Book

- We published an important study on the Cardisoma gunuhmi in the "Tropical Estuaries"Journal.

- Educational module for kids from 4 to 6 years of age presenting the SJBE, in coordination with the University of Sagrado Corazón.

This is one of the most important actions in the CCMP.  The SJBEP handles education and outreach efforts on a daily basis.  All the members of the Program?s Staff participate in this effort, which has proven to be very useful for students and general community members.  Although the SJBEP has good and effective educational materials, we are engaged in the development of additional materials and strategies to better educate the general public.
