Mermaids For Change Photoshoots Involve Children
With lower-income school systems experiencing cuts and defunding of their ocean education and field trip programs, the next generation needs outside help when it comes to learning what they can do to protect our oceans. Fortunately for said school systems, Mermaids For Change — an organization dedicated to teaching kids about ocean conservation — is stepping up to the plate.
Mermaids For Change was founded by radio co-host and executive producer Crissy Whalin, and underwater, nature, and fashion photographer Chiara Salomoni. Both women are passionate about protecting the ocean environment and educating others about the importance of doing so.
