Postcards from Japan - Sailors for the Sea

Postcards from Japan

 October 25, 2013  | By: Oceana

On his last visit to Japan, our chairman, David Rockefeller, Jr. visited Shirahata Elementary School. Students there had been learning about marine ecology through our Rainy Day Kits program. After his visit, the students sent thank you cards and shared their vision of a beautiful, healthy ocean.

To continue their correspondence with the United States, students from Shirahata Elementary School have become pen pals with Morning Creek Elementary School in San Diego. Yokohama and San Diego are sister cities and the students will write to each other about their coastal cities and interest in the ocean!
