The Micronesian Shark Foundation Shark Education Program is conducted jointly with the Palau Conservation Society's “Ridge to Reef” school program. The Ridge to Reef program is open to 5th graders from all of Palau schools.
At the end each program, a team of two from the Foundation talk with the students on the importance of sharks to our ecosystem. Tim, the Shark Ranger, conducts the presentation while Finny the funny shark, attired with a shark costume dances, hugs and shakes hands with the students. Most importantly, Finny brings huge smiles to the children's faces and a recognition that sharks are an important and vital part of the ecosystem and reefs.
