FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program reaches over 40,000 students every year! New curriculum available!
The Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society (FRSCS) program, delivered to elementary and secondary students and First Nations’ communities, uses the iconic white sturgeon to teach and illustrate the rationale for environmental and ecological conservation in Canada as well as leadership and resource management.
In its 10 year history, FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program has been taught by over 1000 teachers from 900 different schools to over 40,000 students in Grades 4 through 7, as well as secondary school students. The program is offered to schools throughout British Columbia in the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga, London and Ottawa Ontario.
“Youth play a huge role in conservation and the sustainability of our earth," said Rick Hansen, Honourary Chair of the Society.
"Providing them with knowledge and skills ensures that students have the opportunity to learn about this amazing species and help find solutions for its survival. It is with the support of organizations like HSBC Bank Canada that make the HSBC Fraser River Sturgeon Education Program possible."
Twenty copies of the award-winning book, “Tale of a Great White Fish,” are provided to each classroom that teaches the program. For more information about the FRSCS Sturgeon Education program, click here.
