Our Vision and Mission

At Sanibel Sea School our vision is a world where all people value, understand and care for the ocean. Our mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.

Our Approach

Sanibel Sea School is dedicated to vibrantly teaching children and adults about marine ecosystems – animals, people, plants, land, ocean and weather. We give students an opportunity to touch, feel and interact with natural surroundings.

The ocean delivers strong messages. Sanibel Sea School provides an experience that fosters an intimate connection with our ocean planet and a wellspring for lifelong stewardship. This is transformative education and it changes lives.

Our Values

If we are to provide positive educational experiences and promote conservation, we must act as a responsible steward of the environment, of our local community, and of the people we serve. Our by-laws mandate that we conduct business in a manner that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes social contributions.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and philanthropic grants, we serve a variety of local organizations, teaching underprivileged and at-risk children and teens; some who live within twenty miles of the ocean and have never seen it.

We believe that the best way to teach people how to love the ocean is to show love ourselves. We value students as individuals. We value the animals we observe. We believe that great teachers truly love kids. And we strive to hire, grow and inspire great teachers.
