What is the Big MaMa Earth Learning Academy?
Big MaMa Earth Learning Academy (BMMELA), formerly known as PACIFIC AQUACULTURE RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE is the first CA 501(c)(3) non-profit environmental and solution based on-line learning academy to be utilized by children, teachers, family members, small and large corporations to governments nationally and internationally.
BMMELA will identify, categorize, and disseminate current environmental and related social educational information to children, families, educators, and community leaders to raise their awareness to viable solutions to the global environmental challenges we face.
Our Board of Directors and Advisory Board will be composed of environmental experts, including scientists, educators and practitioners.
Our children are the future of our Planet and with their leadership we can again be good and responsible stewards of planet earth.
Support BMMELA through Donations
Be part of the change. We are seeking donations from the public, individuals, groups, corporations and other foundations & non-profits to expand our learning academy website and lessons and messages that will be brought forth from the top educators, scientists and renowned experts in their fields.
Topical educational content will be developed and produced by our executive team and partners, and will be presented to (elementary and high schools, families, educators, and industry) in a variety of formats. These will include brief 5-10 minute videos posted to our interactive academy website and classroom research. We are also planning public appearances of the Eco-Earth Kids and the live-action BMME figures, as well as the introduction of the “Big Mama Earth & Me” TV Show.
BMMELA is currently negotiating with numerous corporations, organizations, institutes, and federal and state agencies to sponsor/partner with BMMELA to develop environmental education awareness content.
