Storytelling…

Storytelling is the oldest form of passing information from one person to another and from one generation to the other. Stories are woven into every history, culture and community. Telling, listening and reacting to stories is engraved into our DNA. The Watermen Project uses the art of storytelling to motivate women, men and children to volunteer their service to the preservation and conservation of our oceans. We believe that there is nothing more powerful to inspire change than a compelling story, especially one told in an engaging manner.

Significant Story Projects

The Watermen Project measures its success by the impact its stories have on young people to get actively engaged in ocean conservation.
