Honu Tortuga Project

This is a cross cultural/environmental art project with students in the California Desert and on the Big Island of Hawaii. The project is intended to educate kids as well as adults about the way that turtles comprise a vital part of our global ecosystem.  Students will be instrumental in communicating with their counterparts through written correspondence (language arts), sharing information and actively participating in habitat clean-ups in their own backyards. Using some of those materials collected will then be recycled and reused to create one-of-a-kind art pieces that weave environmental truths and tell an important story. The artwork will be gathered to produce a traveling exhibit that shown in California and Hawaii.
