Project Abstract

The Rozalia Project's action-oriented, marine debris education programs are designed to connect people of all ages to the ocean and inspire them to become better stewards. These programs are delivered from aboard American Promise, a 60’ sailing research vessel between Maine and New York City in the summer, at schools and dockside locations with camps, museums, community centers and waterfront organizations and throughout the United States the rest of the year. The centerpiece of the program is a sonar-equipped remotely operated vehicle (ROV), which along with an engaging and interactive STEM-education curriculum, serves to give participants a unique and memorable experience that leads to positive behavior changes. Rozalia also incorporates removal into the education, picking up marine debris on the surface, the seafloor and along the shoreline, making an immediate and direct difference to marine ecosystems while creating a lasting difference through education.
