On June 8th hundreds of communities around the globe will celebrate World Oceans Day – an opportunity to learn about our world ocean and our personal connection to the sea, to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives, and the important ways people can help to protect our shared world ocean.
The Ocean Project – with over 1,000 Partner aquariums, zoos, science museums and other educational organizations in 85 countries – is the largest network ever formed to focus on ocean conservation. The Ocean Project, working closely with the World Ocean Network, helps to promote events and activities to celebrate World Oceans Day around the globe.
Let those around you know why you’re wearing blue and share two facts about why it’s important to protect our world oceans.
