The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education conducts the Adopt-A-Beach School Assembly Program in the greater Los Angeles area.
This forty-five minute presentation showing students the way to cleaner beaches and oceans consists of
a slide show illustrating how the increasing amount of plastic and debris in the world's oceans entangles and kills birds, dolphins, turtles and fish with
an explanation of the Los Angeles storm drain system showing the connection between the urban environment and the beaches and oceans.
The Malibu Foundation has reached over 450,000 children and organized an annual "Kids" Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Up every May for 14 years.
