Entering our 32nd year of business, PANTERRA has specialized in programing that introduces participants to the marine environment. Our goals are to impart a knowledge and awareness of the earth's natural history, demonstrate environmental conservation through educational endeavours, enrich the lives of youth by building valuable life skills and inspire an interest in further learning.
The program offers two options:
The first option is an experiential non-credit program, which students can record their encounters and experiences in the Panterra Expedition Logbook.
The second option is the Panterra Expedition Workbook which puts the students to work exploring, discovering, identifying and recording the marine environment and organisms encountered. The Workbook has been designed as a credit program for junior and senior high school students. Both options are a great way for students to learn the natural history of a marine environment and to explore career interests in the many fields of natural sciences.
While living onboard our 110’ ship, The “MV Adventure”, anticipate encounters with whales, dolphins, sea lions, seabirds and an amazing diversity of undersea life. Explore the geology, flora and fauna of the desert islands. Assist in one of two wildlife conservation programs; a sea turtle release/monitor program or whale shark research; all of these activities are designed to make the science textbooks come alive.
In addition, participate in our community service project, “The Baja Gifts Program”, where school supplies, clothing and much more are collected and distributed to remote communities in the area we visit.
