SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Thanks to funding from the Sahm Family Foundation, the Ocean Institute will be rolling out a shark education program for visiting students. According to a press release, the institute will renovate an existing waterfront building to feature a Horn shark touch tank, a shark nursery, and interactive exhibits and artifacts pertaining to sharks. The Sahm Marine Education Center aims to promote science, technology, engineering and math principles through educational experiences for students, teachers, parents and the general public. In last week’s issue of the Dana Point Times, it was reported that the Ocean Institute raised nearly $70,000 in order to replace the engine for the Spirit. The organization was a successful applicant for a highly competitive grant from the California Cultural and Historical Endowment.
