In the waning months of 2018 MAP’s Education Director, Martin Keeley, traveled to Suriname to bring the Marvellous Mangroves curriculum training to the country.

During the course of his travels, Martin was able to visit and teach the curriculum to both schoolchildren as well as teachers-in-training, which will thus have a compounded effect.

Suriname marks the 15th country globally in which the MM has been introduced! It is now part of the national curriculum of several of those countries, and has been taught to over 250,000 children globally. One of the best forms of protecting the world’s vital ecosystems is to make the future guardians of them aware and involved from  a young age, which Martin has been able to do to an unparalleled degree!

Several other countries are in the works for MM in 2019… so stay tuned!
