Upper Cape Tech students become Ocean Ambassadors

Jan 23, 2023

“Ocean Guardian Youth Ambassadors” sounds like the name of a comic book superhero team, but it is a real honor that four Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School freshmen, two of them from Wareham, received on Friday, Jan. 20.

Lilia Lopez Del Moral and Emma Pacheco, of Wareham, and Lia Estes and Kent Spooner, of Marion, received the distinction from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Sanctuaries Program.

The Ocean Guardian Youth Ambassador program gives students interested in ocean conservation toolkits, presentations, opportunities and guidance from scientists.
