USEA Ambassadors are freelance representatives, and guides that are trained to provide professional lectures outside of USEA Academies and Centers. Selected by USEA leaders and the Board of Directors, ambassadors are a crucial part of our alliance.
USEA believes that the new generation, kids, and young people are the leaders of our future. Therefore, it's our responsibility to connect with youth and introduce ethical and moral principles of marine conservation and cetacean anti-captivity movement at their young age.
To achieve this connection, USEA envisions creating an interactive educational curriculum in the form of video games, cartoons, comics, and phone applications to promote the importance of PRESERVING THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT.
