Over the summer of 2022, The Ocean Foundation conducted a community needs assessment to reveal opportunities and resources to support workforce development for marine educators. We collected input from individuals working in various educational professions throughout the Caribbean region. 

While there is still much to be learned about how our Community Ocean Engagement Global Initiative can best support early-career and aspiring marine educators, we hope this initial assessment sheds light on how The Ocean Foundation and other stakeholders can work together to leverage existing opportunities and break down barriers that may hinder career advancement in this field. It is our pleasure to share the results of this assessment.
