"Coastal discoveries" call this "marine education camp"...yeah right...

Recommended Posts

As I haven't written that many posts here on the board I do want to let my fellow readers in on this. When I saw this news contribution on CNN I was in complete shock and really sad what things are done in the name of "education". :-(

A summer camp called "Coastal discoveries" in Newbury, MA claims to be a marine education camp...

Guess killing sharks is the best way to show kids their mission "to share our love of our ocean environment and to teach respect for its fragility." -Lee and Bob Yeomans

 

 

I am thinking of writing them a mail but I guess it won't help anyways. I mean- hey- "its just a shark".

 

Shame on these guys... :-(

The "camp" is run by a fishing operator... so no surprise they teach fishing as part of the curriculum.

 

This is the company's mission statement:

It does seem hypocritical.
