  • The Ocean School strives to create an innovative educational experience that is relevant to curriculum developments, receptive to teachers’ needs, and promotes conservation education in the classroom.
  • Based on the three principles of ‘Do, Find and Think’, students can observe, investigate, and discuss ecological concepts with trained educators while interacting with a diverse range of aquatic life.
  • All programs have been approved by the Ministry of Education as a recommended program for school field trips.


CONSERVATION PROGRAMS These focus on a variety of global environmental issues such as habitat loss, pollution, climate change, poaching, and overfishing. By focusing on how these events affect animals and their environments, students will learn about various conservation principles that build awareness and inspire action to protect, promote, and preserve our planet. JEWELS OF ARABIA PROGRAMS Designed to showcase the amazing habitats and species of the UAE. Topics of study include mangroves, deserts, and wadis. Students will learn about dozens of resident species including the Arabian Oryx, Flamingos, Sea Turtles, and many more. Local traditions and UAE culture, including the history of pearl diving are also highlights of the program. SURVIVOR PROGRAMS Focused on the adaptations that animals use to survive.
