NAMEPA promotes the education of seafarers and port communities by offering programs and materials designed to help them make responsible decisions about the marine environment. We also work with K-12 students, colleges, universities and academies, as well as mentor and support students who wish to learn more about, or pursue careers in, marine environment protection and the marine industry. Help us spread the word!

Watch our short educational video to see what we do!
