THE ECOMARINES MISSION
Phew, thank goodness. We've got a special rescue mission just for you... We need your help to create a wave of environmental change!
This mission contains top secret information and tools on how to help the environment. You will have a lot of fun, and at the same time teach your friends and family on how they can help, too. Don't forget to report back to us when your mission is completed so that we can thank you for your help.

p.s. We also have a How You Can Help mission for grown-ups.
If you prefer to get 'hands on' with your missions, then we have a printable version for you!
Good luck, and welcome to Team EcoMarines!
