Join Planet Aware and connect with our coasts- find out more about why they matter and how we can help keep them healthy.
The Planet Aware Ocean Challenge is a chance to get outdoors with a purpose, learn something new about our coast and oceans while having fun.
There are seven challenges to complete, you can do one, two or all of the challenges and you can do each challenge as often as you want! Ocean Challenge sheets are available below or you can pick up a copy from you local library (Ryde, Ventnor, Freshwater, Cowes and Newport) or Lesley’s Nutshell, Ventnor. When you have finished your challenge sheet, return it to us via the collection points, or by simply emailing over a photo of your completed challenges.
Remember to also share your photos of completed challenges with us on social media FB:@Planetaware Instagram: Planetawareiow , #planetawarechallenge ,via email, or as a print out accompanying your ocean challenge sheet.
Once you return your sheet you will be entered into a prize draw. There is one for each challenge ( random draw for challenges 1,2,3,4,5, and best poster 7) with a grand prize awarded for the first completed challenge, again picked at random.
Prizes include: A family ticket to Tapnell Farm, a Rapanui voucher for an ocean t-shirt and many more .

Keep yourself safe during the Planet Aware Ocean Challenge
- Check the tides before you go out
- Always go out with another person
- Keep an eye on the tide while you are on the beach
- Take care on rocky or slippery ground
- Wash your hands thoroughly after doing your challenge
- Check the latest government advice on Covid-19 before you go out
The most important thing is to enjoy yourself – and share your love of the sea to inspire others!
Covid-19 has made this a difficult time for all of us – and shown us how important nature and our oceans are. Being stuck indoors during lock down has made us at Planet Aware really appreciate what we have on our doorstep and how valuable it is and we hope the Challenge will get you out to explore and consider some of the issues facing our Oceans.
