MAKO (Miami Advocate Kids for the Ocean) is a community based organization that strives to get kids involved in marine conservation efforts through public outreach, fun events, interactive education, and social media. Together, we are creating the next generation of ocean heroes.
MAKO works closely alongside many prominent conservation groups and established marine research institutions in and around the state of Florida. Through these community partnerships, we are working to inspire the future of marine conservation.
Since our founding in 2016, MAKO has organized numerous community outreach events, including beach cleanups and educational school presentations. As a youth-led organization, we are leveraging a unique "youth empowering youth" approach to ocean conservation.
