The Jellyfish Project (JFP) provides a unique educational experience to learn about ocean health and climate change via a high-energy music performance by a band, followed by a captivating slide presentation. The music grabs the students' attention setting the stage for the powerful and hopeful messages that follow. Students are left feeling empowered to become stewards of the planet. The JFP model is for young musicians (20's-30's) to deliver the presentation because students seem to be receptive to information coming from people in a younger demographic. So far, 190 schools have taken in the JFP presentation! "Carmanah" has been the primary band for four years and they look forward to inspiring and motivating lots more students in the 2019-2020 school year.


December 12, 2017 I am writing you to congratulate The Jellyfish Project on a great, engaging, musical presentation that also delivered a very clear and important message regarding climate change and the respecting of the environment. The musicians were very engaging and their original music was very catchy and upbeat. The kids loved the music and the pictures that accompanied the music were also very à propos to the theme of environmental stewardship. Finally, the educational materials that were sent in advance of the presentation were also great for building student awareness and understanding of environmental stewardship. Again, thanks so much for your musical presentation and I look forward to having you return to our school again in the future. Sincerely, Grant Mellemstrand Vice-Principal/Directeur-Adjoint École Cobble Hill Elementary School Cobble Hill, B.C.
