$50,000 Ocean Acidification Art Challenge
OAA hosted Australia’s largest environmental art show in 2013. This was created to stimulate a deeper understanding of Ocean Acidification.
The website www.OceanAcidification.net, created by Ocean Ark Alliance, was dedicated to presenting the very latest facts and teaching resources relating to the threats that Ocean Acidification pose to the marine world, coastal communities and future generations.
Open to all Year 9-12 students in Victoria, Australia, this 2013 art show was the beginning of what the Ocean Ark Alliance hopes will become a national and international initiative.
Specific topics included the impact of Ocean Acidification on coral reefs, southern seas, polar seas, marine life, coastal communities and economic wealth.
The prize money consisted of School Environmental Project Grants and Student Study Grants.
Funded by Eye On The World Natural Images. Major Development Partners also included Morel Preservation, Plankton Productions, Oceanic and the Marine Education Society Australia.
