We believe that the hope for our oceans lies in the hands of our children and storytelling is a great way to engage kids in marine conservation. That’s why we created a story about a little shark called Fin.
Education is one of the main pillars of the Blue Religion conservation program. Our goal is to raise awareness about the issues like pollution crisis and overfishing and inspire people to take action.
We think that educating the children about our planet and threats to it is more important than anything else. That’s why we created presentations, games, and stories which we share with kids in schools and children's centers. We are trying to get kids closer to the ocean, help them build a positive relationship with the animals living in it, and find an understanding of the importance of its wealth.
Our mission is to pass the information to the kids, especially the youngest ones, in a positive and fun way. And that’s how the little shark Fin and his story got born.
It’s a tale of a brave little shark who traveled the ocean to find his family after his mum didn’t come back to him. On his journey, he meets many interesting and knowledgable animals, like the wise Mister Octopus, the huge and majestic whale Ophelia or the funnily synchronized school of tuna. The animals explain to the little shark what’s bothering them and how they believe the people can help them.
The tale is meant to be read to the children with a presentation of pictures. This way, the children learn about the importance of our oceans, develop empathy for the ocean life and have fun at the same time.
